The brothers were actually pretty scared when they realised it was Joseph. The brother that they sold was now a very powerful man and could have had them all killed. But Joseph loved them and he forgave them! In fact Joseph told all his brothers to bring their families to Egypt so that he could keep them safe and feed them in the famine. And they did!
Joseph also said to his brothers, "As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today."
God took something that was bad and used it for good. He not only saved Joseph but all of Joseph's family and the people of Egypt. God's promise to keep his people was kept. Not only that but from this family would come another rescuer, Jesus Christ.
