The Dreams of Joseph

The Dreams of Joseph

Israel and his family moved to the land of Canaan, where they were prospering and enjoying life. While there, Jacob showered his youngest son Joseph with love, showing him to be his favorite by giving him an extraordinary coat with many colors. This caused his brothers to hate him, and when he started having dreams of his brothers and parents bowing down to him, his brothers became even angrier. In their rage, they threw him in a pit and sold him into slavery, concocting a lie to tell their father about Joseph’s death.

Genesis 37:5
Jacob and his family then fled, finally going to Bethel, the place where God intended for Jacob to settle. God reaffirmed his promise to Jacob, and all seemed to be headed in the right direction. But today we’ll see a familiar monster rear its head… favoritism. It’s a common theme that always has destructive results. When a parent elevates their affection for one child above all others there is bound to be jealously, resentment, and hurt. And these can lead to some truly disastrous actions, which we will see again today.
