It may also mean withstanding adversity and temptation. In his youth Joseph was sold into slavery. He was taken away from everything he loved. Later he was tempted to be unchaste. He resisted the temptation and said, "How then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?" His love for God was more powerful than any adversity or temptation.
