• The patriarchs became jealous of Joseph and sold him into Egypt. Yet God was with him. Acts 7:9

• Joseph’s life was filled with drama.

Loved by his father, he irritated his brothers, who sold him into slavery.

• After serving his Egyptian master faithfully, he was falsely accused and imprisoned.

• While jailed, he became an effective leader, and then rose to prominence in Egypt.

• As a result of this miraculous promotion, his family escaped drought after moving to this new land.

• This story inspired one of the great literary masterpieces of the twentieth century,

Bible provides much more.

• Many, in fact, see this as just a “myth,” filled with emotion, conflict, tragedy, and triumph.

But Believers have the opportunity to go much deeper.

To read with spiritual eyes.

To know that, more than just a heroic figure,

Joseph was an example of faith (Hebrews 11:22).

How he was “tested” in Egypt and that his life was part of the unfolding of God’s plan (Psalm 105:17-22).

When you read the Bible, remember to know that it is true!

Prayerfully seek God’s wisdom and understanding.

Don’t stay on the surface, but dig deep.


• Prayer •

Father, open my eyes that You might reveal deeper truths about Your Word.

Give me understanding and wisdom.

Thank You. In Jesus’ name.
