<![CDATA[ I believe Joseph is one of the most powerful examples of godly success in the Bible - a teenager who went from family rejection, to the pit, to being a slave, a prisoner, and then a ruler, second in command only to Pharaoh. This is an enduring story because it demonstrates how God can take a seventeen-year-old teenager whose own brothers wanted to kill him, and turn him into somebody that the world looked up to. The story of Joseph demonstrates that success doesn't come easy, but it also teaches us that if we stay faithful and maintain our integrity, in what may seem to be the most unfair circumstances and difficulties of life, then God can set us up for success regardless of what man does.]]>
