Joseph reveals himself. He’s full of praise for God, his planning, so there are no recriminations directed at his brothers. Though as he sends them off to fetch their father and households, he tells them not to argue on the way.
Such a happy ending. Though in the back of my mind I’m remembering that the next book is exodus, where the nation of Israel are shaves in Egypt trying desperately to leave. There has already been mention of how the Egyptians detest the Israelites.
We still have a long long path until the Messiah comes.
Still, this is a great lesson in how, as the old hymn says “God is working his purpose out as year succeeds to year”.
I’m 54. Lots of years left, most likely. What has God for in store for me?
