Genesis 50:19-20 “But Joseph said to them (his brothers), ‘Don't be afraid. Am I in the place of God? You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.’” (NIV)
Joseph’s life is an amazing testimony of forgiveness. He had so many reasons to be bitter, revengeful, slothful, and rebellious, yet he forgave, performed his best under poor situations, made no effort to get even, and went the extra mile to finish well. What an example of Godly living. What are some practical ways in Christ that help you respond correctly to bad conditions? One way is to dwell on what God is doing and not on what has happened to you. How about you. How do you respond in God’s way instead of the flesh?
