If you had been Joseph, would you have considered your brothers heavenly and full of life and light? In Genesis 37:2 we are told that Joseph brought to his father an evil report regarding his brothers. Furthermore, according to chapter 37, Joseph’s brothers were full of hatred and anger, and according to chapter 38, they were full of lust. In chapter 37 we see the hatred and anger of Joseph’s brothers, and in chapter 38 we see Judah’s lust. Joseph saw the evil of his brothers and reported it to his father. But Joseph had two dreams (Genesis 37:5-9). In the first dream Joseph saw sheaves in the field. This dream reveals that, at the most, Joseph was just a sheaf and that, at the worst, his brothers also were sheaves. God gave Joseph this dream, and in it he had God’s view of his brothers….God came to give Joseph a dream, and He seemed to say, “Joseph, in My eyes you are the same as your brothers, and they are just as good as you are. You are a sheaf, and they also are sheaves. The only difference between you and them is that I have chosen you to reign. But this does not mean that you are better than they are.” (Life-study of Genesis, ch. 110, by Witness Lee)
