The biography of Joseph is nothing short of remarkable, occupying as much or more space in Genesis than the biographies of Adam, Noah, Abraham, or even his father, Jacob. Joseph emerges from the pages of Scripture as a man with whom most of us can identify. His story begins at age 17 and ends at age 110 (Genesis 50:26). Over his long life, Joseph responded to broken dreams and impossible circumstances with a faith that propelled him from the pit of slavery to the pinnacle of power.

You know those times when you know you’re supposed to be thankful but there’s nothing to be grateful about?

“The Apostle Paul clearly determined to die well. He fought the fight and kept the faith. Let’s do the same.”
- Charles R. Swindoll
