Day 5 - What the Bible says

Today's reading: Genesis 40:1-48:22

What's in today's reading: Joseph interprets some dreams, takes over Egypt, saves his family

I love Joseph's story. His brothers treat him like dirt by selling him into slavery, but he keeps his chin up and is promoted to head care-taker of his master's house. Then his master's wife accuses him of rape, so he's thrown in jail, but he keeps his chin up and the jailer puts him in charge of everything. Eventually he's put in charge of the entire country and saves everyone from a horrible drought.

No matter how bad bad can get, don't give up. Never ever ever ever give up. God's got plans.
