Genesis 37:12-17

 Joseph’s epic mission to save his brothers begins with the willing spirit characteristic of God’s servants.  .

A. 12 And his brethren went to feed their father’s flock in Shechem.

B. 13 And Israel said unto Joseph, Do not thy brethren feed the flock in Shechem?

C. come, and I will send thee unto them.

D. And he said to him, Here am I.

C’. 14 And he said to him, Go, I pray thee,

B’. see whether it be well with thy brethren, and well with the flocks; and bring me word again.

A’. So he sent him out of the vale of Hebron, and he came to Shechem.

A. 15 And a certain man found him, and, behold, he was wandering in the field:

B. and the man asked him, saying, What seekest thou?

C. 16 And he said, I seek my brethren: tell me, I pray thee, where they feed their flocks.

B’. 17 And the man said, They are departed hence; for I heard them say, Let us go to Dothan.

A’. And Joseph went after his brethren, and found them in Dothan.
