My coat of many colours: Joseph

Through their eyes

A reflection on some Bible stories. By Bukky Ajaks

My coat of many colours: Joseph.

Joseph wore many crowns: favourite son, slave boy, prisoner-in-charge, Ex-convict turned powerful prime minister and loving son and brother, generous family sponsor and provider. It all started with a dream. It ended with him saving a whole nation from starvation and possibly multitudes from other neighbouring countries. What’s your dream today? Do you let your past stop you? Your past shouldn’t stop you, it should push you forward. Keep going! You have a future because though others may mean you harm, God turns it for good.

“You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.”

Genesis 50:20 NIV
