Can Anything Good Come Out of Egypt?

Joseph’s brothers sold him to Ishmaelites who then took him away from his home country, “Now Joseph had been taken down to Egypt. And Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh, captain of the guard, an Egyptian, bought him from the Ishmaelites who had taken him down there” (Genesis 39:1).
Why does the story bother to follow Joseph down into Egypt? Can anything good come out of Egypt? Is the world a better place because the Egyptian kingdom existed? How can anything good come from taking a righteous boy from his righteous father and keeping them separate for twenty-two years?
Friends, the things that God can do go beyond what we can imagine. Keep reading the biblical story and you will see amazing things in the life of Joseph and that of his family’s.
