Scripture Reference: “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory” -2 Cor. 4:17
A path without obstacles leads nowhere. Greatness is a journey through a jungle where we have to conquer wild beasts, kill the dragon and deal with the many challenges we face. These are experiences which would strengthen us to accommodate the greatness ahead. We must not neglect this factor because the way to success is uphill. Challenges are inevitable.
Joseph faced challenges. It is clear that the bitter experiences Joseph experienced, prepared him for the top. Let us face it, can you imagine God giving you such a beautiful vision of greatness where everything submits to you, including your father and mother but suddenly the journey begins – your first stop is a ‘slave trade show’ where you emerge as the slave then, he ended up in prison.
I wonder how he felt. Could this be the reward from being faithful? No! However, the path to greatness is loaded with challenges. We can handle challenges the way Joseph handled them.
