Joseph of the Old Testament had a roller coaster ride of a life. Actually, to him it probably seemed like the “Bottomless Coaster” in the un-amusement park of life.
When one carefully counts his experiences, dividing them into positive and negative events, we find that he had twice as many negative experiences as positive. The negatives screamed out, “Give up!” The positives told him, “Go on!”
Joseph succeeded as the major player in God’s plan and purpose for His nation of Hebrews, saving millions of souls from cruel bondage by simply tuning out the “Give Ups” and cranking up the “Go Ons.”
