As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today.
Genesis 50:20 ESV
Sold into slavery, lied on, put in prison, didn't see his mother before she died, and estranged from his father for over 20 years. Joseph had a hard life. Yet through all of this he was able to see God's good purposes and forgive those who wronged him. Because they deserved it? No. Because he wanted to be free!
FORGIVE AND BE FREE!
