This week we saw the final unveiling of what God was really doing as Joseph went through years of suffering and difficulty, only to find himself lifted up to the right hand of Pharoah as a Prince in Egypt. We also saw Joseph’s difficult decision to forgive his brothers and release them from any consequences for what they did to him all those years ago.
