Character has been defined as what you are when no one else can see you. The story of Joseph in Potiphar's house teaches us lessons about character.
Joseph was an extraordinary type of Jesus Christ. His life and character parallels Christ's in at least 16 ways, which God purposefully foreordained.
Joseph's example proves that even the most difficult temptation can be resisted and overcome, though this skill must be developed incrementally.
Even allowing for mankind's free moral agency and propensity to stumble, God still works out His purpose, even when people do not know it is for their good.
Our outward works show what we believe, what we worship, and what we aspire to become. Apart from God, all human works activities are potentially destructive.
Cohabitation has led to increased divorce, marital violence, and lack of fidelity after marriage. Mass media has shamelessly used sex to promote materialism.
Joseph knew and recognized his brothers before they knew him, even as God knows our guiltiest secret sins that we think we have effectively hidden.
Many singles have found dating in the church difficult, consequently turning to the world for companionship, courting dangerous consequences.
Young people must make a choice in favor of God's will. We have the freedom of choice to set our destiny, and must bear the consequences of our choice.
God's faithfulness is the foundation of our faith. We cannot live by faith unless we believe we have a God who is faithful in everything He does.
Even though feminist leaders have attacked the Bible for allegedly denigrating and demeaning women, God's Word emphasizes the honor and dignity of women.
When we mortify the flesh, refusing to feed the hungry beast of our carnal nature, we suffer. Suffering for righteousness' sake helps us to know Christ.
