The primary life purpose of Joseph (not Mary’s husband) was to save Israel (the nation, not the individual) from perishing with the famine. All the other things were just additions. He is not in the lineage of Christ but he was saddled with the responsibility to protect that lineage by preserving Judah!
The primary life purpose of Moses was to deliver theĀ IsraelitesĀ from slavery in Egypt. He didn’t do more than that, not in the lineage of Christ either.
Joshua’s primary life purpose was to lead the Israelites into Canaan, nothing more. Not in the lineage as well.
Samson’s primary purpose was to deliver Israel from their oppressors, the same goes for Deborah, Gideon, Shamgar, and so many others in the book of Judges.
Noah’s purpose was to preserve all the living land and air animals until after the flood that wiped out all of humanity.
What is your purpose? You are not insignificant.
