“When [the brothers] saw [Joseph] from a distance and before he came close to them, they plotted against him to put him to death.” (Genesis 37:18). Jealousy can quickly grow into an ugly and uncontrollable rage, completely blinding us to what is right and honorable. Jealousy seeks to destroy whatever it touches – marriages, families, communities, and even nations…. Fast forward several hundred years, and we find another Man, the Lord Jesus was sent by His Father to His brothers who also hated and despised Him. But for both Joseph and Jesus, those who sought to destroy them, only served to help move them closer to their intended destinies.
