Growing up, everyday, Joseph would have to tend to flocks. Unlike the others, he was favored by his father the most out of Israel's other sons.
When Potiphar Bought Joseph
Joseph started having dreams. He portrayed them as that in the future, he would be above others. His first dream was about a group of bundles of grains. There was one representing him and the others, his brothers, circled "him" and praised him.
I am to take the responsibility of everything in this household, and I will never fall into your temptation.
After many dreams, Joseph's brothers started to hate him. The brothers started to plot on how to kill him and ended up selling Joseph to the Ishmaelites for 20 pieces of silver.
Joseph's Sentence to Prison
Later, in Egypt, Joseph was sold to a man named Potiphar, an official of Pharaoh. He promised Joseph that he was going to help him prosper, and God was with him every step of the way.
Joseph was put in charge of Potiphar's household in order to help him prosper to be a good leader and learn to have responsibilities. Although, he was tempted by Potiphar's wife who had a desire for him. But every time he was tempted, he rejected her.
Come here Joseph!
After running away, Joseph was later found and sent to prison for a lie Potiphar's wife had made. Although, God was proud of his courage and was with him all throughout his sentence.
