How does God move from being the God of a single family to the God of an entire nation?
TALK: Consider some of these ideas:
- Joseph is the golden child with a colorful coat, destined to be noticed wherever he may end up. Can he prevail in the face of jealousy, danger, and deception?
- Sometimes following God is difficult and dangerous. But God remains faithful to those who follow.
- In what ways is it unsafe to follow Jesus today? How do you respond to God’s call in light of the potential dangers?
- What gifts has God given you? How can you use your gifts for good?
PRAY: You have brought us through many trials, O Lord. Look with favor upon us yet, and keep on showing us how best to glorify your name. Amen.
BLESS: May God remain faithful to you each and every day. Amen.
