Big Grin Paul the Dreamer: Beating Life's Challenges
Now Israel loved Joseph more than some of his other sons, because he had been born to him in his old age; and he built a richly ornamented robe for him. When his friends saw that their father loved him more than any one of them, they hated him and could not speak a kind word to him.

Genesis 37:3-4

Of the the bible figures I have arrived at love--- one incredible man would have to become the first in-line. His life was quite interesting and continues to provide useful lessons which are still appropriate within our contemporary times. His name was Joseph... The favourite son of Jacob... A guy who'd beautiful dreams... The item of sibling rivalry.

In the story, Joseph was often the center of his father's love and interest. Edward even gave Joseph a colourful coat or dress that came to signify how particular he was in his father's eyes. Afterwards, he would pay for his father's foolish actions. Discover additional information on the affiliated wiki by clicking dr joseph ajaka reviews. Joseph's friends resented him because he was the favorite child. Jacob, the father, had two wives, two concubines, and a dozen kids --- all competing for his attention. Joseph's family drama have all of the ingredients of a t.v soap opera...with different episodes of jealousy, hate, deception and self-interest. Reading the account of Joseph's life is like being fixed to the t.v screen filled with anticipation about what will happen next.

Joseph, the dreamer, once told his brothers a couple of dream that the time would come when they would all bow down to him. This dream made his brothers grow more angry towards him. Joseph was sent by his father on an errand, one day. Particularly, Joseph was requested to go to his friends have been in the area. Some accounts state that his friends plotted to kill him but later chose to put Joseph right into a hole. Joseph's brothers also took his decorative coat and wiped it with animal blood. They later lied with their father by saying that Joseph died after being attacked by wildlife. As time passes at the bottom of the pit, Joseph was found by traveling retailers and later sold him into slavery.

The young lad was later bought by the retailers to Potiphar, one of many Egyptian Pharaoh's respected leaders. Being a worker in Potiphar's household, he became famous in his labors. H-e was later employed manager over Potiphar's house. The story takes a radical change when Potiphar's wife falsely accused Joseph of trying to sexually assault her. Of-course, Potiphar's wife did this to return at Joseph who frequently warded off her sexual advances. Enraged by the accusation, Potiphar sent Joseph to prison.

In jail, Joseph again found favor by being able understand the dreams of the Pharaoh. The Pharaoh was so high in tension and anxiety about the dreams he could not understand and the horrible dreams he had. Through Joseph, the Pharaoh surely could understand the economic benefits of his dreams for your land of Egypt. Later, h-e was appointed governor of Egypt. Where Jacob and his sons lived the famine that struck the land became exactly why these were later reunited. Reconciliation between his brothers and Joseph paved the-way for Jacob to again see his son.

This amazing story shows exactly how we, like Joseph, should cling to faith even in the most trying conditions. Anxiety and stress will not need to stop us from believing that God has forsaken us and that we've been left alone in the centre of most our problems. Certainly, overcoming life's difficulties is a journey of confidence, faith, and conviction that all people must simply take. Like Joseph, we can also dream great dreams and live up to our highest potential..
