Today we have seen God’s providential care over his people. He ordered people and events for his purpose and for the benefit of his people. As God’s people today we must remember that all things are ours. The world, life, death, the present, the future, all of it, is ours. God has made all things to serve the church and its formation. Whether it be through times of persecution and martyrdom or ease and prosperity God has brought these for the good of the church. In light of this fact, we are not called to whine and complain about the state of the world. Joseph followed God’s commands and fought for what was right and God blessed him, saved his family and countless others. He didn’t wallow in self-pity. We too must not just sit and complain about the darkness around us. We are called to fight the evil that is around us. As Paul said in 1 Corinthians 5, to purge the evil from among us in the church.
