Vayigash

“And he sent off his brothers … saying to them: ‘Don’t be too hasty on the way”
~ Genesis 45:24

Joseph isn’t only alive, he rules over all Egypt! Naturally, his brothers want to rush home and share the good news with their father.

Why warn them not to hurry?

Because in the same way everything is part of a divine plan, everything also has its time. So rushing around frantically not only creates the risk of silly mistakes, it actually makes no difference to the result.

Faith means trusting that things will be as they should, when they should.
