Welcome to my blog,my friend.This is writer Ada Aba's chinese blog with personal ideas from the east and west,What do you want to know about China?

The most tolerant man in the world

English: Joseph made ruler in Egypt 

As we move into the Bible's stories about Joseph, we meet a dreamer who is also much-loved by his father, Jacob.I love the story of Joesph.Joesph is a great son,also  a Truth finder and dream maker.May be too honest,He told people what dream he made,which means that he will run the show.Their brothers were very jealous of him.They sell him as a pig ,which means sending him to Egypt for trafficking purposes.

But he never sad or complain, still belive in god,and did whatever he should do to move on his life.Later he got  False accusation.The Pharaoh of Egypt put him into prison. But he never gave hope up,still try to find the chance getting out of trouble.

At the end ,he got an unexpected help , and later became a prime minister of Egypt,
what harder,he even forgave his brothers who did harm to himself.when the famine came and his brothers came to Egypt to seek food, they did not recognize him, but after he had them sent for other relatives he provided food for his family (thus saving Israel)and even live together later.
I wonder if I would have been that forgiving, and you? but some way, some how God will intervene!I know that God, in his wisdom and mercy, will balance the good and the evil of people's acts, and judge their kindly.So we should all keep up an optimistic belief that the world is more forgiving than is commonly supposed.Tolerance maybe another window from a closed house.God will always make a way for His people. What a mighty God we have.

Yes, this is a very facinating story that God has left us, so that we too can learn to forgive! In the Bible, look up:
Matthew 6:14-15
"For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins."
This is a very importsnt verse, that many do not really understand. We, as Christians, HAVE to forgive those who do us wrong. Our model, our Savior Jesus Christ forgave those who crucified we must learn to forgive as well. That is were we get this promise...2 Corinthians 5:17
"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!"
That is soooo Very Cool! know that we are free of our mistakes, of our sins, by His forgiveness! My favorite would have to be, Psalm 103:12
"as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us."
That's quite a distance...and I, though it is very difficult at times, have to try and be the same. And you know what Lian?, I actually feel a whole lot better when I do forgive...not because I know that God will be keeping His promise to forgive me (Yes, that is GREAT!)...but because, when I forgive, it feels as though an unwanted weight has been lifted off of my heart!...yes, what a Mighty God we have indeed!
