Review and Discussion

Challenge your child to retell the story. Help him or her remember key details by asking the following questions:

  • What special skill did God give Joseph? (Joseph was wise and could interpret dreams.)
  • What did Pharaoh do when Joseph correctly interpreted his dreams? (He put Joseph in charge of storing up all the food.)
  • How did Joseph respond when his brothers were scared of him? (He said that God used his brothers’ harm for good. Joseph shared food with them.)

Read the following thought aloud to help increase your child’s understanding:

Trusting in and following God does not mean things will always be easy. But no matter how difficult things become, we can know that God sees us and will work everything for good.

Memory Verse

You (point away from yourself)
intended to harm me (point to yourself),
but God (point both hands up)
intended it all for good (thumbs up).
He (point both hands up) brought me (point to yourself)
to this position (stomp your foot once)
so I could save the lives of many people (thumbs up).
Genesis 50:20 (NLT)

Talk to God

Dear God,

You are powerful, and I am grateful that You are always in control. Help me trust in that truth even when pain and struggle come.
Amen.
