IF ANYONE EVER had the right to feel bitter and vindictive toward others it was Joseph. His brothers hated him so badly they nearly murdered him but instead chose to sell him into slavery. He could have easily spent the following years in Egypt scheming on how he might pay his brothers back for their evil toward him should he get the chance. But if you read his story, there is never a hint of bitterness. Even when the opportunity came to punish his brothers he instead confessed his unwavering faith in the providence of God.
