Well campers, I am sorry about yesterday post. I got it up there late and it missed the email delivery schedule, which I can’t change from my phone at the moment. But yeah, it’s Friday and you get a double dose of fun!
Last night I was given the privilege of speaking to all these kids up here at this camp, so today I thought I would share one little bit of information from that. (plus my sleep patterns are disturbed enough that I am not as creative this morning as normal.)
Check out these words of Joseph when his brothers who sold him , come groveling at his feet.
19 But Joseph said to them, “Don’t be afraid. Am I in the place of God? 20 You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. 21 So then, don’t be afraid. I will provide for you and your children. ” And he reassured them and spoke kindly to them. Genesis 50<\blockquote>
To me it’s pretty amazing to see that type of forgiveness and that spirit of gentleness. I mean really he had the power to take off there heads, but he forgave and took care of them. I wonder how many times we want to ‘play God’ and handle our own retribution? Hm. Think about it.
And if you haven’t read the Joseph story in a while, you may want to grab up a copy of Genesis and give it a read.
