We all face challenges in our lives that are beyond our control. The issue is not what we face, but rather how we will face it. Will we give in to the tough times and allow them to make us bitter and resentful? Or will we choose to face tough times with a sense of purpose and integrity? Joseph lived with a dysfunctional father and irresponsible brothers, but he never allowed their focus or attitude to determine what course he would take. He lived his life with a sense of purpose and destiny. He lived as if his life truly mattered and that made all for the difference for him and it will for us.
