Joseph

17 years old. Mocked. Hated. Thrown in a pit. Waiting execution, but sold for silver. Torn from family. Bought by foreigners. Slavery, prison, accusation. Then one day it all turns around. A son named Manasseh, 'cause the old perpetrators were forgiven.  But the heart is tested; the mockers come and it is Joseph's turn to mock, hate, and execute...  or tell them instead, "What you meant for evil God meant for good." If only we could all understand Joseph a little better.
