Quenching Bitterness

"Joseph said ... Don’t be afraid ... You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish ... the saving of many lives." - Genesis 50:19b-20
Actions from others turn sweet, kind youth into cynical, bitter, revengeful, old before their time people.

There is a way to avoid that for one's self, Joseph in the Old Testament did by employing three (3) life principles:
1. Living in the fear of God;

2. Recognizing God used even the very wrong and painful deeds of others to work a blessing;

3. Choosing to live for God's purposes instead of one's own.
