Practical Living: Turn Arounds, Part 6 – Joseph (#862)
Today, we’ll continue our series on turnarounds.   Today we’ll read about Joseph, who was the son of Jacob (Jacob was the son of Issac, who was the son Abraham).  Joseph, the first-born son of Rachel, was his father’s favorite son and Jacob gave him a coat of many colors.  God also favored Joseph and was with him (God’s Spirit was upon him), and gave him a dream of the future.  When Joseph shared this dream with his brothers they were jealous, conspired against him, and sold him into slavery.  But the LORD was with Joseph and caused him to prosper in spite of difficult circumstances.  Let’s look at these records.
