Forgiveness?

Imagine this emotional roller-coaster:
– Being mad at your brother
– Thinking you killed him
– Depending on a foreign official to save your family’s life
– Finding out he is your brother
– Being scared of his retaliation

And then Joseph does the unthinkable, saying:
“Now do not be upset or blame yourselves because you sold me here. It was really God who sent me ahead of you to save people’s lives.”

Imagine yourself in the place of Benjamin. What would you have felt upon learning Joseph’s identity? Imagine yourself in the place of Jacob. What would you have felt upon hearing that Joseph was indeed alive?
