Lessons from the Life of Joseph

Joseph's life path from teenage dreamer to Egyptian dignitary was certainly NOT a straight line. From family discord to slavery to prison to forgotten dreamer he eventually made his way from apparent failure to public leader.

Along the way he learned huge lessons about - dealing with disappointment, resisting temptation and caring for the downcast. These are the kind of lessons people like us need when our dreams don't come true on our timetable.

As far as I can tell we all have a lot to learn from this amazing Old Testament story.
