God Uses Joseph’s Suffering (like Jesus’ Suffering) for Others
God can make good come from any situation. He “repurposes” suffering for His good. Use the search term “repurpose” on Pinterest. There are plenty of creative examples of old items being given a new purpose.
- Imagine being Joseph. What emotions would you have had as you rode your chariot to see your father after 20+ years? As you rode together back to Egypt, what things do you think you would talk about?
- Where is your favorite place to talk as a family? Where are your favorite places to talk with individual members of your family?
- How did Joseph treat his family well? How did he treat the Egyptians well?
- How do you think Joseph was able to forgive his brothers?
