The Providence of God
As Jacob comes face-to-face with his brothers, what will his reaction be? I mean these are the guys who sold him and sent him on a 13-year journey as a household servant and prison sufferer. If you were coming face-to-face with people who led you into over a decade worth of pain and heartache, what would you say? What would you do?
Joseph's response is shocking. Really shocking. What we see from him is the response of someone who was able to maintain a soft heart through many decades of pain. How did he do that?
It has to do with his understanding of the providence of God. What did he understand? What do we need to understand so we too can preserve soft hearts through life's pain?
