Genesis 37

Joseph was the youngest and favored Son of Jacob (Israel). His brothers were jealous and said to one another, “Here comes that dreamer, let us kill him…”

It would seem that from the beginning, those called, gifted and blessed by the Lord, are often harassed, persecuted and even put to death.

Lord God, what is it that sometimes prevents us from welcoming those among us, who are harbingers of your wisdom and your grace.
