Genesis 45

Joseph was betrayed by his own brothers. They sold him into slavery and he grew up in a world not his own. But years down the line, Joseph forgives his brothers. There had been plenty of time for bitterness to take root and Joseph certainly had reason to hold a grudge, but he chose forgiveness. Part of our role in the world today is to forgive because we have been forgiven. Who needs grace and forgiveness from you today?
