Lessons Galore

today's reading.
Genesis 37:2-28; 45:4-15    These are the generations of Jacob. Joseph, being seventeen years old, was pasturing the flock with his brothers. He was a boy with the sons of Bilhah and Zilpah, his father's wives. And Joseph brought a bad report of them to their father...
Genesis 37:2-28

think about it.
What is Joseph's gift? What response did he get for it? As Joseph reveals his identity, what does he reveal about God's purpose?

the blog.
There are just so many life examples and lessons we can take from Joseph's story. In our two passages today, for example, I saw learning opportunities on parenting, family relationships, coping, responding to mistreatment, jealousy, forgiveness.... But the most important thing I saw was how God was present; He was in control and He was working through each and every situation.

So that's some of what I took from Joseph today. How about you? What learning opportunities did you see? Tami W.
