Genesis 45:4-8 – New Revised Standard Version

4 Then Joseph said to his brothers, “Come closer to me.” And they came closer. He said, “I am your brother, Joseph, whom you sold into Egypt.

5 And now do not be distressed or angry with yourselves because you sold me here, for God sent me before you to preserve life.

6 For the famine has been in the land these two years, and there are five more years in which there will be neither plowing nor harvest.

7 God sent me before you to preserve for you a remnant on earth and to keep alive for you many survivors.

8 So it was not you who sent me here but God; he has made me a father to Pharaoh and lord of all his house and ruler over all the land of Egypt.

Joseph’s story of reconciliation with his family reveals elements of decision‐making and actions guiding them as they can guide us also in our own lives. We realize in revisiting Joseph’s story that God’s hand was at work all the time. We are touched by a reminder that God’s hand and planning are at work in our own lives, as well.
