Celebrate one of the Bible's best examples of turning lemons into lemonade. Robbed and sold into slavery by his brothers, Joseph could have lived a life filled with bitterness and hate. Instead, he stood on his faith in God to save him, and eventually returned home in triumph to pardon those who had wronged him. Disappointment can destroy the joy of living, or by contrast, make it all the more beautiful and precious. With faith, perserverance will always outlast persecution. The Men of Character series highlights the lives of men in the bible whose relationships with God we learn from today. Each of these leaders face trials, frustration, and failure, yet was inspired by God to achieve great goals. In a world where Christian role models seem increasingly rare, this series reminds us that some of the most worthy examples of godly character are still the biblical figures who brought power, wisdom and inspiration to God's people through the ages.
