Joseph Sold By His Brothers
12Now his brothers had gone to graze their father’s flocks near
13and Israel said to Joseph, “As you know, your brothers are
grazing the flocks near Shechem. Come, I am going to send
you to them.”
“Very well,” he replied.
14So he said to him, “Go and see if all is well with your brothers and with the flocks, and bring word back to me.”
Then he sent him off from the Valley of Hebron.
When Joseph arrived at Shechem,
15a man found him wandering around in the fields and asked
him, “What are you looking for?”
16He replied, “I’m looking for my brothers. Can you tell me
where they are grazing their flocks?”
17“They have moved on from here,” the man answered. “I
heard them say, ‘Let’s go to Dothan.’ ”
So Joseph went after his brothers and found them near Dothan.
18But they saw him in the distance, and before he reached them, they plotted to kill him.
19“Here comes that dreamer!” they said to each other.
20“Come now, let’s kill him and throw him into one of these
cisterns and say that a ferocious animal devoured him. Then we’ll see what comes of his dreams.”
21When Reuben heard this, he tried to rescue him from their
hands. “Let’s not take his life,” he said.
22“Don’t shed any blood. Throw him into this cistern here in
from them and take him back to his father.
23So when Joseph came to his brothers, they stripped him of his robe—the ornate robe he was wearing—
24and they took him and threw him into the cistern. The cistern was empty; there was no water in it.
No matter what man does they can not change God's plan.
I remained without a flow of positive energy in my life,
until I realized that God gave money and wanted to bless me.
After reading this book you will live every day believing that
great things are coming your way.
