“Joseph said to his brothers, “I am Joseph! Is my father still alive?”  His brothers could not answer him, because they were terrified by his presence.  Joseph said to his brothers, “Come closer to me, please.”  They came closer. He said, “I am Joseph, your brother, whom you sold into Egypt.  Now do not be upset or angry with yourselves for selling me to this place, since God sent me ahead of you to preserve life.  For two years now the famine has been in the land, and there are still five more years in which there will be neither plowing nor harvest.  God sent me ahead of you to preserve you as survivors on the earth, and to keep you alive by a great act of deliverance.  So it was not you who sent me here, but God, and he has made me a father to Pharaoh, lord over his entire household, and ruler over the whole land of Egypt.”  (Genesis 45:3-8)

“In the same way let your light shine in people’s presence, so that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven.”  (Matthew 5:16)

The threatening oracle which the prophet Habakkuk saw.  2 How long, Lord, must I cry for help, but you do not listen?   I call out to you, “Violence!” but you do not save!  3 Why do you cause me to see injustice?  Why do you overlook misery?  Devastation and violence confront me.  There is strife, and tensions rise.  4 For this reason the law has become powerless. Justice is never carried out.  In fact, the wicked overwhelm the righteous so that justice is perverted... Then the Lord answered me. He said: Record the vision and write it plainly on tablets so that a herald may run with it.  3 Indeed, the vision is waiting for the appointed time. It longs for fulfillment and will not prove false. If it seems slow in coming, wait for it, because it will certainly come and will not be delayed.  4 Look, his soul is puffed up and is not righteous within him—but the righteous one will live by his faith”  - (Habakkuk 1:1-4, 2:2-4.)

“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”  (Lamentations 3:22-23)
