Lessons From Joseph (Genesis 45:5-8)

Phillip Stuckey, April 28, 2019
Part of the Men of the Old Testament series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Joseph was the 11th son of Jacob and the first son of Rachel (Gen. 30:22-24). He becomes one of the central figures in the latter part of Genesis and serves as a bridge between the time of the Patriarchs and the Exodus (Gen. 37-50). His life spanned 110 years and is full of many lessons that came from a life that was filled with some very hard times. Let’s consider three lessons from the life of Joseph.

Genesis 45:5–8 (Listen)

And now do not be distressed or angry with yourselves because you sold me here, for God sent me before you to preserve life. For the famine has been in the land these two years, and there are yet five years in which there will be neither plowing nor harvest. And God sent me before you to preserve for you a remnant on earth, and to keep alive for you many survivors. So it was not you who sent me here, but God. He has made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house and ruler over all the land of Egypt.
