People are going to fail you, disappoint you, leave you hanging
out to dry. Let that drive you to God.
Notice that through all of Joseph's troubles, God remained with
Paul told the church in Rome
"Nasi twajua ya kuwa katika mambo yote Mungu hufanya kazi
pamoja na wale wampendao katika kuwapatia mema"
All things, even the bad things we face, will be made to work for
the good of God's children.
Joseph's loyalty to God was tested by his troubles and Joseph passed
the test. Even though everything appeared to go wrong for thirteen
years, Joseph managed to hold on to his faith. However, also notice
that Joseph was being trained during this time to run a nation by
first running a household and then a prison.
This is not the end of the story of Joseph and his brothers. There
is a happy ending when 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 and hatred.

6. APPLICATION / ENCOUNTERING GOD:
Have the children write down times when they have felt afraid, sad
and grieving. 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 it
the papers at the foot of the cross.
Lord I place my life in your hands. I want to serve you and do what
you want me to do. Lead me in the right path and remind me you are
always there. In Jesus name we pray. Amen
