Genesis 38 and 39

Genesis 38 and 39 talk about two brothers. Chapter 38 is about Judah while chapter 39 is about Joseph.The two brothers were indeed different by all accounts. Judah compromised himself to sexual sin (ending up siring a child with his daughter in law!!). Joseph refused to sleep with his boss's wife (Potiphar's wife) and ended up in prison for something he never did. I asked myself why these 2 stories are side by side and learnt that evil and good are not very far from each other. It is almost a given that you will hear of some evil thing soon after being blessed with a good deed and vice versa.When evil appears to be winning, take comfort that the good hand of God is just around the corner.
