Joseph was betrayed by his brothers and sold into slavery. He was in Egypt first ruling over a household, until falsely accused of rape and thrown into a dungeon. Then he spent years in in prison, where he learned the Egyptian culture and how Pharoah and his household worked, and ruled although a prisoner. These long years were difficult but got him positioned for his life destiny. Joseph chose forgiveness, submitted himself to God, and enjoyed God’s favor. He ended up ruling Egypt and stored up grain for a season of famine. Not only Egypt but the entire region and their nations were preserved, along with Joseph’s brothers and their families.
