Blessing in the Midst of Suffering

The Life of Joseph: Pain & Providence

Blessing in the Midst of Suffering

Genesis 39

Have you ever been punished for doing the right thing? Why should I do good when nothing good will come out of it? Why should we go out of our way to bless others?

  • We can bless others when circumstances aren’t what we want them to be.
  • We can bless others when people aren’t what we want them to be.
  • We can bless others when results aren’t what we want them to be.

The Life of Joseph: Pain & Providence

Often the pain of our past and present and the uncertainty of our future causes us to doubt God. This week we look at the struggles that Joseph experienced and how that can bring us hope.

Genesis 37
