Yosef was sold as a slave by his brothers, but this humiliation led to his becoming a great leader.
Tamar was rejected, but this rejection led to her becoming the mother of the dynasty of King David.
We can learn from these and similar Torah incidents that any time we become discouraged from unfortunate events in our lives, we are reacting prematurely.
Our lowest moments can lead to our greatest fortune.
