  • Genesis 37
    • Carlye B. Haynes: “It was foolish of his father to place Joseph in a post of superintendency, but being in that place made Joseph responsible to their father for an account of their behavior.” (God Sent a Man 29)
    • Carlye B. Haynes:  “It was such a robe as was worn only by the opulent and the noble, by kings’ sons, and particularly by those who had no need to toil for their living. In short, it was the garment of a prince. It was given to Joseph for the purpose of marking his superiority, of making a distinction between him and his more rude brothers. No wonder they bore a grudge against him!” (God Sent a Man 28)

    • Frederick Buechner: “Turn around and believe that the good news that we are loved is gooder than we ever dared hope, and that to believe in that good news, to live out of it and toward it, to be in love with the good news, is of all glad things in this world the gladdest of all.” (In Philip Yancey, Vanishing Grace, 70)
