“Anger: Seed of Vengeance”
Genesis 43: 25: “Then Joseph gave orders to fill their bags with grain and to restore every man’s money in his sack, and to give them provisions for the journey.” If you were Joseph, wouldn’t you jump at the obviously heaven-sent opportunity to repay his brothers for all the jealousy, disrespect, and hatred they had inflicted on him, and all his misery that ensued? Not Joseph. His strange actions toward them were not revenge, but a test of their current character. In the end he delivered all seventy members of his family—not the actions of an angry or vengeful man!
