Parents, today your child continued learning about Joseph’s life. Joseph was put into prison where he interpreted dreams for two of the prisoners. God was with Joseph, even in prison. Later, Joseph helped Pharaoh learn about one of his dreams
Yesterday your child learned the Weekly Bible verse as it pertained to Joseph, let it be a great reminder for all of us today
“God’s people go through the flames, and he lets it happen. Why? Sometimes we won’t ever know. But he uses what’s intended for our harm to bless us. He takes what the enemy means for evil and makes it part of something precious, something we can’t get in any other way. We might not see it in this life, but he is at work. And the enemy is, and will be, defeated.” Emma Scrivener writes more about trusting God in Bad Things Are Not Good here: https://www.thegospelcoalition.org/article/bad-things-are-not-good/
As Americans, we give lip service to the truth that we are all equal. While our laws strengthen that ideal, the reality is we do not always reflect that in our attitudes or relationships. Our fallen human nature seeks to make distinctions between races, but God makes no distinction. We are to follow the example of Christ and openly accept and embrace one other.
