Joseph's dream of the stars - Genesis 37:1
When Joseph, son of Jacob, shared with his 11 brothers the dream he had of his bundle of grain standing upright while theirs bowed down to him, they grew jealous. By sharing another dream in which the sun, moon, and 11 stars bowed down to him, he incited hatred in his brothers. While God was trying to show him the great role he was to play in salvation history, Joseph took a little too much pride in that information, but it also helped him to trust God after his brothers turned on him and sold him into slavery.
