THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD: Proven and Promoted, pt. 7

Have you ever been faced with a situation where doing the right thing might not seem like it's immediately beneficial?  What do you do?  It takes faith to do the right thing anyway.  This is one of the things that the story of Joseph teaches us.  Being faithful  wherever you find yourself out of reverence for the Lord is a mark of faith, and God honors that kind of faith expressed in diligence.  Find out in this teaching why the scriptures say that God was with Joseph, and what the results are of the Presence of the Lord.  



THE PIT TEST: Proven and Promoted, pt. 6

Jesus said in this life we would have some tribulation sometimes.  Some of the pits of life we find ourselves in are just a part of life, and some of them are of our own making, like young Joseph.  But how we respond when we are in the pit determines where our lives go from that point forward.  



THE PRIDE TEST: Proven and Promoted, pt. 5

THE GREAT PARADOX: Proven and Promoted, part 4

It seems to be inherent in all humans to want to be great.  But the path to greatness is not what seems natural or obvious.
