When God “Ruins” Your Life (Genesis 37)

We begin a study called “God’s Grace To Overcome” and in this study we are going to examine God’s word concerning the life of Joseph found in Genesis 37-50. But I look forward to examining these scriptures in a different way than in previous times. It is easy to study the life of Joseph and only note what Joseph did and moralistic lessons are made out of those events. For example, from Genesis 37 the lesson is taught that parents should play favorites or cause hatred between siblings. Or sometimes the message is that Joseph has bragging about his dreams, so be sure not to brag. But are these points the true reason why these scriptures were recorded and maintained for us? Are these the points that God wanted us to learn?
