You can’t live very long in this world without being hurt by another. The natural reaction is to seek revenge or become bitter. Jesus commanded us to forgive “so that your Father in heaven may forgive you” (Mark 11:25). That’s a challenging assignment but essential to coping with the tragedies that surface in almost every life. Today we observe Joseph as an inspiring example of Godly behavior in the way he forgave his brothers of their horrible abuses against him.
