Complications weren’t anticipated; after all, Genesis 41:56-57 informs us that, “The famine was over all the face of the earth…So all countries came to Joseph in Egypt to buy grain.” As the brothers approached Joseph, the usual business formalities … Continue reading What Goes Around Comes Around…Or Does It?

In the pages of the Bible, a … Continue reading Thoughts
