"Sticks & stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me."
The truth is, we cannot get through life without being hurt. What matters in life is our response to being hurt or offended. The Bible is filled with stories of people getting hurt. Their responses are recorded to inspire and help us as we encounter similar circumstances in our lives.
This week, we look in Genesis 37 at the story of Joseph and his brothers who hated him so much that could not speak a kind word towards him.
