Joseph’s brothers hated him, nevertheless, when his father asked him to check up on his brothers, he went without complaint or hesitation,

Then his brothers went to feed their father’s flock in Shechem. And Israel said to Joseph, “Are not your brothers feeding the flock in Shechem? Come, I will send you to them.” So he said to him, “Here I am.” Then he said to him, “Please go and see if it is well with your brothers and well with the flocks, and bring back word to me.” So he sent him out of the Valley of Hebron, and he went to Shechem (Genesis 37.12–14). 

“So he sent him…and he went…” Moses wrote. That says it all for the life of Joseph. May the Lord give us the spirit of this teenager.
