Genesis 43-45: Happily Ever After...At Least For a Little While

Joseph's Brothers Beg For Help
Pontormo c.1515

I believe, Genesis 44 depicts Joseph’s attempt at determining the character of his brothers. Did they put jealousy behind them? Are they now more concerned about the welfare of others above themselves? Yes and Yes!

Not only had Joseph grown mature, but his older brothers had also. This beautiful story reads somewhat like a fairy tale…and they lived happily ever after, at least for the next several decades; we will read about that a few chapters from today.

Abba, You design the most fascinating stories. Even my own life reads like a novel.  Each of Your kids' lives have a story waiting to be told.  Empower us to tell our stories for the glory of One!!!!  AMEN!!!
