"Or that all things work together for good to those that love God." Romans 8:28
Something hard to grasp sometimes is why troubles happen in our lives when we love the Lord. But God promises that he will use everything, even our troubles, for our good if we love Him. In this story Joseph is given a coat of many colors from his father, Jacob. Josephs brothers became very jealous and sold him. God allowed all this horrible stuff to happen but God had a greater plan for him. Joesph became a great ruler in Egypt and was able to help his brothers when they needed help (Joseph forgave them).
