Series Big Idea
Though Joseph lived through so many messed up experiences, the Lord was with him and his life became a model of integrity and grace.
Joseph is an incredible Biblical hero. His story occupies more space in the book of Genesis than any other single individual… including Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, or Jacob. Yet so much that happened in Joseph’s life was messed up! Though he made a few early mistakes himself, he was terribly mistreated by many people in many ways. Yet, he lived high above the all-too-common reactions of rage, resentment, or revenge. He is a model of integrity and grace, and we can learn much from his story.
