Joseph 

Famine, he called upon the land, but God had a plan. So He sent Joseph His beloved son.

In slavery he was sold, in prison he was thrown but to save him there was none.

In God’s appointed time, the king had a dream. No one was found to give the meaning though they searched all around. 
“But wait! a prisoner in chains had such a gift” said the king’s waiter.
So Joseph a man without strife, interpreted it as a message from God to preserve life. 

Jacob’s son with a coat of many colours was also God’s son with a gift to impart heavenly favours. 

His feet with fetters were loose so that matters of life administration they would pursue, for the king “made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance, to bind his princes at his pleasure; and teach his senators wisdom”(1)
Life by the side of his earthly father as a child was his privilege.
As an adult, his Heavenly Father’s gift made room for him, so that life preservation for the sake of multitudes become his blessed vocation and message. 

-Inspiration from the book of Genesis’ Story of Joseph & Psalm 105.

-Quote (1)from Psalm 105 vs 21-22
