Surviving and Imperfect Family by Jason Exley
Joseph was raised in a home filled with angry, jealous and deceitful people, yet he became one of the two men who’s lives are recorded in the Bible about whom there is not one word of criticism.
While families have changed, there is a sense in which they haven’t changed. Joseph’s family lived some 4000 years ago. While the culture has changed, we’ll see some of the same moral failures in his family that you’d find in some of today’s families.
Joseph’s family tree is a case study in imperfection, one full of Favoritism, Jealousy, Hatred, and Rejection.
But Joseph’s life gives us some valuable lessons on surviving imperfect families.
- Don’t Quit
