Joseph’s life makes for a captivating story. More importantly, though, it also demonstrates God’s providential care. Joseph was favored by his father, but a source of envy for his brothers. They therefore planned to kill the one who, in God’s providence, would be used to save them from famine. Reviewing Joseph’s story, Alistair Begg reminds us that God works everything together according to His wise plan—and that by avoiding trials, we may miss out on His blessings.
1Jacob lived in the land of his father's sojournings, in the land of Canaan.
