I do a lot of whining to God. One one hand, God is the perfect target of whining because he can take it, and he can bring correct to me and the situation that I’m whining about. But in thinking about this, I realize that there is no room for self-pity in Christian maturity.
Do you think that Joseph struggled with self pity during that time? Do you think that he questioned himself and his God while lingering in prison? Do you think that Joseph whined to God occasionally? Joseph had gone from favorite son to prisoner through no fault of his own.
