Joseph was a part of a family. Even though Joseph grew up in a messed-up family, he did not allow his unusual and dysfunctional family background to get in the way of serving God. He refused to use his family history as an excuse.

We are also part of an earthly family as well as a Christian Church family. We are the brothers and sisters of Jesus The Church is a family bound together by love for God, their Heavenly Father, and for one another.

One day Jesus was together with his disciples in a house. When Jesus' mother and brothers arrived at the house, they sent someone inside to look for him. They told Jesus, “Your mother and brothers are outside looking for you.” Jesus looked around at the people seated around him and answered, "Here are my mother and my brothers! Whoever does God’s will is my brother & sister & mother.”

Did Jesus love his real mother and brothers? Of course he did, but he also realized that he had another family. It was a family made up of those who loved his Heavenly Father and did his will.

You and I love our families, but we also have a wonderful family of faith made up of brothers and sisters who love God and love one another. It is wonderful to be a part of "The Family of God."

Joseph was loved by his earthly father, he gave him a very special present, can you remember what that was?

But Joseph was also very important to God who loved him and you will learn later in this teaching God never left him even in Joseph’s times of difficulties. God knew Joseph before he was even born and He had a great plan for Joseph just like He has for you.

Yeremiya 1:5a
“Ndisanakulenge iwe m'mimba ndinakudziwa, ndipo usanabadwe ndinakupatula iwe; ”

Yeremiya 29:11
“Pakuti ndidziwa malingiriro amene ndilingiririra inu, ati Yehova, malingiriro a mtendere, si a choipa, akukupatsani inu adzukulu ndi chiyembekezero.”

Joseph's father loved him more than his brothers. Do you know anyone else in the Bible like that? Jesus is the beloved son and preferred one of the Father.

Heal a Hurting Heart Curriculum

Just a couple of years ago nearly a quarter of a million households in Nigeria were at risk after heavy rains caused flooding that inundated 80 per cent of the country.

The rainfall began in July and continued into September, causing Nigeria’s two main rivers – the Niger and the Benue – to burst their banks. The resulting disaster is affecting 34 of the country’s 36 states and has caused 141 deaths and 265 injuries to date.
