Capsule for the Day
The biblical Joseph is an interesting character. He was the fruit of his mother's prayer. He was born into a family of many brothers. He was the youngest and beloved son of his father. He dreamed dreams. He saw things differently. He was a game-changer and a star.
His dreams attracted the envy and jealousy of his brothers. They sold him out, Potipha’s wife lay false allegations against him, the jailer and his prison mates made things difficult for him in prison. Each of these persons tried to stop him shining. But none of them succeeded.
He shone; and he shone so brightly that his own brothers, who sold him out, came and bowed before him. It wasn't easy for Joseph. It isn't easy for many of us too who are going through the bitter valley of envy and jealousy. If no one could stop Joseph from shining, no one can stop us either.
