Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age. Also he made him a tunic of many colors. But when his brothers saw that their father loved him more than all his brothers, they hated him and could not speak peaceably to him. (Genesis 37:3-4, NKJV)

Joseph’s brothers didn’t like that Joseph was so special in his father’s eyes. They didn’t encourage him, rather, they hated him for how he was treated by his father. They mocked him and ridiculed him for his dreams. Even so, Joseph carried on and didn’t let them stop him from sharing what he felt God wanted for him.

“For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church. For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones.” (Ephesians 5:28-29) A few years ago my sister-in-law and I put on a skit at a ladies…

“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28 KJV) Years ago I got a frantic call from my little sister. She was making cookies and something went wrong. She explained that…

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:” (1 Peter 5:8, KJV) My four-year-old thinks I am quite talented. He was in awe when I knew he had been eating a cookie he hid under the chair. “How…

“The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,  Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words. Then I went down to the potter’s house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels. And the vessel that he made of…
