September 27 – Genesis

We are working our way through the Joseph stories of Genesis. This one is found in chapter 39.

When [Joseph’s] master heard the words that his wife spoke to him, [falsely] saying, ‘This is the way your servant treated me’, he became enraged.  And Joseph’s master took him and put him into the prison, the place where the king’s prisoners were confined; he remained there in prison.

Reflection – Joseph is imprisoned unjustly.  How do you feel when you hear of people who are imprisoned for a crime they did not commit?  Why is it so hard to change, let alone challenge, an unjust system?
