Voices of Faith: Does God control who becomes our leader?

Rabbi Mark Levin of Congregation Beth Torah, Overland Park, Kan.: The Bible demonstrates how God’s greater purposes are achieved through the events of history. For instance, Joseph’s descent into Egypt with the entire Hebrew people achieved the slavery predicted in Genesis 15, but the same results might have occurred with a different series of events. Otherwise, Joseph’s brothers would not have been culpable for their deeds. As Joseph says at the end of Genesis, “You meant it for evil, but God meant it for good.”
