It would have been easy for Joseph to take revenge on his brothers. After all, how cruel they had been to him just a few years before. But there was no need for revenge, for Joseph knew that God would do what was needed to be done in the name of justice; Joseph didn’t need to do that.
God’s mercy is greater than His justice. The love that God had for Joseph’s mean brothers was greater than God’s anger to punish them. Because Joseph was close to God, he felt the same way.
I hope you enjoy this wonderful story of a family being brought back together by the constant love of one other member. Your love can draw your family together!
