Many men in the Bible showed their emotions and wept. Mighty Kings in the Old Testament wept.

  • Ndipo Davide ndi anthu amene anali naye anakweza mau ao, nalira misozi, kufikira analibe mphamvu yakuliranso.
    (1 Samuele 30:4)
  • Ndipo pocheuka Yuda, taonani, nkhondo inayambana nao kumaso ndi kumbuyo; nafuulira iwo kwa Yehova. (2 Mbiri 13:14)
  • Ndipo m'mene anayandikira, anaona mzindawo naulirira (Luka 19:41)

People are going to fail you, disappoint you, leave you hanging out to dry. Let that drive you to God.

Notice that through all of Joseph's troubles, God remained with him.

Paul told the church in Rome

"Nasi twajua ya kuwa katika mambo yote Mungu hufanya kazi pamoja na wale wampendao katika kuwapatia mema"

Warumi 8:28

All things, even the bad things we face, will be made to work for the good of God's children.

Joseph's loyalty to God was tested by his troubles and Joseph passed the test. Even though everything appeared to go wrong for thirteen years, Joseph managed to hold on to his faith. However, also notice that Joseph was being trained during this time to run a nation by first running a household and then a prison.

This is not the end of the story of Joseph and his brothers. There is a happy ending when Joseph is reunited with his father and brothers. But for today, we learn the lesson of the terrible things that happen because of the sin of jealousy and hatred.

Heal a Hurting Heart Curriculum

Just a couple of years ago nearly a quarter of a million households in Nigeria were at risk after heavy rains caused flooding that inundated 80 per cent of the country.

The rainfall began in July and continued into September, causing Nigeria’s two main rivers – the Niger and the Benue – to burst their banks. The resulting disaster is affecting 34 of the country’s 36 states and has caused 141 deaths and 265 injuries to date.
