a. Review
(5 minutes)


Last week what did we learn Joseph’s brothers did to him?
(He was betrayed by his brothers and thrown into a pit.)

These were pits that were shaped like a bottle. They had a narrow neck, big enough for a bucket to go down. There would be no way to come up and get out.

He would be in that well at the bottom, scared, hurt and confused.

Imagine how bad he felt!

c. Teach the Lesson (15 minutes)
Introduction:

What a terrible thing for Joseph's brothers to do -- just because they were jealous of their brother. How would you feel? I hope that we would never do anything so terrible, but we can learn from this story that jealousy can cause us to do things that will hurt other people. It is something that we should guard against.

Teaching:
And they sit down to have lunch, verse 25. And while they’re having lunch, somebody spots a caravan coming. Verse 26, Judas said to his brothers, ‘What profit is it for us to kill our brother and cover up his blood? Come; let’s sell him to the Ishmaelites.’” You remember Ishmael? (The son of Haggar, the handmaid of Sarah.)

We live in a world in which God's people frequently suffer at the hands of others.


Optional: DownloadJoseph Sold into Slavery’ video

Does Joseph’s story remind you of anyone else that we read about in the Bible?

All throughout scripture we read about Jesus and how he lived a perfect. But Jesus suffered terrible things, even though he didn’t deserve it, just like Joseph did not deserve it! In fact, people planned truly wicked things to do to him, just like Joseph’s brothers. Jesus was put to death, which is the greatest evil there is! But God is so good and so gracious that He allowed good things to come from this terrible event. Both Jesus and Joseph were stripped of their robes and placed in a pit for three days where they ultimately arose victorious to be great princes and became exalted by God for their great suffering. The stories of Joseph and Jesus are both a kind of "rags to riches" story. Joseph was brought out of the pit and prison to be exalted to the Pharaoh's right hand.

Jesus was brought out from the pit after death and exalted to the Father's right hand.

6. APPLICATION / ENCOUNTERING GOD:
Sit the children around in a circle. “Can you identify with some of the emotions that Joseph must have felt?” (Rejected, betrayed, confused, afraid, unhappy, angry, bitter, frustrated etc)

Let’s close our eyes and share our feels with Jesus.
The pit is not your full potential. Don’t get used to it. You may feel you are in the pit now but you are next in line for a promotion. In one day Joseph went from the prison to the Palace. You may not like where you are today but it could change in one day and today could be the day. This should be your attitude! Losers focus on what they are going through, champions focus on where they are going to! So, remember in the life of Joseph that trials will come, that God controls every event in your life, that everything you are going through is leading to the Palace and don’t give up on you dream because GOD NEVER WILL!

God says he will never leave us and that when bad things happen we can call on him to help us. We can call on God as if we had a cell phone that only connects to him. He never hangs up on us. He is never unavailable. He never runs out of charge. God wants to hear from us, especially when we are in trouble. Don’t get chained in bondage, be free.

Optional: Get the children to break their paper chains.

CLOSING PRAYER: God wants you to talk to him. He gives you a phone called prayer. He is interested in how you feel and what’s happening to you. Call God on your prayer phone. Tell him how you are feeling, what worries you and ask him to help you. He promises to answer.
