Joseph’s brothers arrive in Egypt looking for food. This is Joseph’s chance for revenge. It looks like he is going to do that when he puts them in prison, but he lets all of them go except for Simeon. Will they abandon Simeon as they did Joseph, or will they return?

It would have been tempting for Joseph to lash out in anger at his brothers, but he doesn’t. Anger can be difficult to control when we look only at how we have been hurt. We don’t look to see how God may be at work. The next time you are hurt, ask yourself what God might be doing in this situation. Maybe it will help to reduce your anger.
