Dreamers. There is considerable debate about whether they have meaning. Joseph’s dreams did. They were prophet. In time they would come true. But on this day, the day he told his family, his brothers hated him all the more. Envy and hatred are strong emotions and God will use them to help us see that He will use them to bring about His plan and will for the saving a family, the family He had chosen to be His people, to bring about salvation through His Son, who would be the promised Messiah. As believers, we are called to live in love, to show the world that we are God’s followers and lead others to Christ through our example.
