Bible in 90 Days - Day 3

This morning I read Genesis 29 through 40. I can't believe how many mistakes people make and yet God still loves us.

Abraham - made mistakes and God talked to him face to face.
Isaac - don't know much about his life but God led him, especially in the choosing of a wife.
Jacob - a liar, a deceiver. God still talked to him face to face and through dreams.

The story of Joseph is amazing. Joseph didn't do anything wrong, at least nothing included in the Bible. And yet he was oppressed by his brothers, sold into slavery, falsely accused by an adulterous woman, thrown into jail. But God is with him every step of the way. Joseph remained positive and faithful through all of his life experiences. I have much to learn from his example.
