Humanity is the same, although geographically and racially divided. This is the most important piece of information, requiring dissemination and application. It is totally insane, to discriminately view human beings, according to racial and educational background. It appears true that some people appear more informed than others, on matters of access to information.
Let us analyze God’s views on saving lives. The physical nature carries the being, created in God’s image. It is, therefore, wrong and unreasonable to consider other people as more important and worth living, than others. Joseph’s brothers committed the most abominable sin, ill-treating their brother. But Joseph clarified a point, which may still not be understood by many.
But Joseph said to them, “Don’t be afraid. Am I in the place of God? You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. So then, don’t be afraid. I will provide for you and your children.” And he reassured them and spoke kindly to them” (Genesis 50:19-21 NIV).
Joseph was giving assurance to his brothers who, through their jealousness, had treated him awkwardly. In Joseph, they had seen a conceited young fellow, undeserving to live. They had attempted to kill him but failed, due to God’s intervention. They, instead, sold him to foreigners, who could have easily done the dirty work of eliminating his life.
