The Story: Joseph: From Slavery to Deputy Pharaoh

Week 4: Chapter 3 of The Story

Decision we have to make:
When bad stuff happens, will you get bitter or get better.

The Importance of Perspective:

Genesis 45:5-8
It was to save lives that God sent me ahead of you.

Genesis 50:19-21
You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good...the saving of many lives.

1. When life is unfair, grow up!
James 1:2-4
Hard times help us mature and grow up.

2. When life is unfair, shape up!
Hebrews 12:7-11
God uses hardships in our lives to discipline us.
Don't waste a hurt. Use it. Learn something from it.

3. When life is unfair, look up!
Philippians 1:12-13

The Big Idea:
Being aware of God's upper story provides perspective for your lower story.
