My Forgiving Family
Genesis 50:1, 15-21
Imagine a family where the youngest son is the father's favorite. Jealous older brothers devise a plot to kill the favored child and tell their father a wild animal ate him. One of the brothers convinces the others to amend that plan and sell their young brother into slavery. Years later, a famine forces the brothers to travel to another country to beg for grain. The official with the power to save their lives is none other baby brother. Now an adult, his brothers don't know him, but he recognizes them! How would you respond? Would you seek revenge and allow your siblings and their families to starve? Joseph chose to put aside past hurts, forgive his brothers, and treat them with kindness. Is there someone in your family you need to forgive?
