The Aridity of Grace

Today's scripture story reveals how Joseph went through a transformation. He changed from being an annoying and arrogant boy to being a wise and loving man. The story also reveals another kind of transformation. It shows how God works in hopeless situations to bring about something good.  

Joseph lived long enough to see that grace in his own life. He lived long enough to be a hero. “You may have meant it for evil, but God meant it for God,” he said. In the arid times of our lives, may we see flowers growing and may God help us become heroes.
