Summary Statements

¨      You will seldom get what you deserve from people, so don’t expect it!

(Example: Joseph was thrown into prison on false charges.)


¨      You will always get what is best from God, so don’t doubt it!

(Example: Joseph and his entire family were taken care of.)


¨      Your ability to handle both (#1 and #2) is directly related to the consistency of your   relationship with the Lord!

                        you see about their lives that make you think this?





Question #2:    Can you think of an experience where you or someone you know

                        was rewarded for keeping their integrity? Can you think of anyone

                        who suffered the consequences of compromising their integrity?
