"The secret to forgiving everything is to understand nothing."  

George Bernard Shaw 

Ummm... about the pic... It's titled Joseph forgives his Brothers, as in Genesis 45:1-15 and 50:15-21. It is an illustration from a Bible card published by the Providence Lithograph Company. 

That does NOT look like Joseph forgiving his brothers. It looks like Joseph's about to do something entirely different. Haaaay, Joe! Get it! Look at the rest of the girls in the back. Now THAT'S high drama. I love each and every one of them. Fabulous. No question. 

All kidding aside, it all kind of ties in with the quote, though: Who knows what Joseph is up to, or what's going on with his posse back there. We need not presume, or attempt to get a handle on what's actually going with Joseph. Let's just leave him alone and let him do his own thing. Live and let live, Joseph. Peace, my brother. 

Lesson adjourned.
