“Now a new king arose over Egypt, who did not know Joseph.” (Exodus 1:8). Who was Joseph? His story is found in the last several chapters of Genesis. He was a national hero; his wise plan kept millions from starvation during seven years of famine. Here we are in Exodus, 400 years have passed and the new king doesn’t know of Joseph. This is an important lesson for Christians, especially parents. Every generation is just one generation away from forgetting our heroes, but more importantly, from forgetting the sacrifice of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
