c. Teach the Lesson (15 minutes)
Introduction:

Joseph’s father said to him, "Your brothers are out tending my sheep. I want you to go check and make sure that they are ok."

Teaching:
Read: Genesis 37: 17-24

Joseph reminds us that it is possible to patiently endure, continuing to put our trust in God’s plan. He spent 13 years in God’s waiting room. That’s how long it took for God to prepare Joseph for what was about to happen next. And as he waited, Joseph served others with genuine concern and he refused to allow God’s dream to die. He trusted God’s plan and knew that God was with him.

How do we deal with challenges? Oh, I wish it could be a one-time decision. I wish we could just do the right thing and be done with it, but we have learned from Joseph that trusting God is an ongoing challenge. It is a lifetime commitment. There will be ups and downs. There will be times when it will seem much easier to just give in. But Joseph reminds us that it is possible to be faithful over a long period of time in very difficult circumstances

What kind of attitude do we have when life doesn’t go as we think it should? What do we do when it seems like God has forgotten about us?
Like Joseph, we might be tempted to give up, but hopefully we also hang on and continue doing what we need to do.

We think of some of what the apostle Paul went through – beatings, and shipwrecks, and all kinds of abuse – and this is what Paul told the Corinthian Christians.

2 Corinthiërs 4:7-9

“Dat we dat nu begrijpen is als een kostbare schat. Maar die schat zit in een breekbare kruik (= ons lichaam). De kracht die in ons is en die groter is dan elke andere kracht, is niet onze eigen kracht. Het is Gods kracht in ons. We zijn wel in moeilijkheden, maar door zijn kracht zitten we nooit helemaal klem. We hebben wel raad nodig, maar door zijn kracht zijn we nooit wanhopig. We worden wel vervolgd, maar door zijn kracht laat God ons nooit in de steek. We worden wel vertrapt, maar door zijn kracht staan we telkens weer op.”

Paul had a rough life, but he also refused to let the dream die. Paul continued living the Christian life.

Paul, like Joseph, in the waiting room of disappointment, continued to hang on to God’s plan for his life. Both men continued putting their trust in God.

Before we close, I must tell you that this is not the end of the story of Joseph and his brothers. The story does have a happy ending and Joseph is reunited with his father and brothers. But for today, we learn the lesson of the terrible things that happen because of the sin of jealousy.

Sometimes bad things happen to good people, but God is still in control and He still had a plan for Joseph’s life.

Discussion:

6. APPLICATION / ENCOUNTERING GOD:
When you get hurt you need to take care of your injuries. When you fall down and graze your knee you need a plaster. When someone hurts you or you are in a shocking or scary situation, you need to take care of your heart. You need to make sure that you don't end up hating or being troubled by fear. You put a plaster on your heart by talking about your troubles and not keep any bad feelings inside. God wants to remind you that He will always be there to listen to you. He says he will never leave you or forsake you.

Have the children write about times when they have felt afraid, betrayed and separated from loved ones. Create a ‘Heaven Corner’ with a gold cloth on a chair with Jesus’ crown and a wooden cross covered with a red cross to represent His blood. Get them to come and place the papers at the foot of the cross and leave those experiences there.
