In week 4 learned about God’s promise Abraham. What was that promise? (To make his descendants great in numbers like the dust on the earth.)

  1. Why did Joseph’s brothers not like him? Genesis 37:3-4
  2. How did Joseph handle the bad things that happened to him? (He trusted God.)

Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and now Joseph believed that God would take care of them. They trusted God to keep his promises even when it seemed impossible. They knew had a plan and a purpose for them.

How about you? Do you trust God even when you can’t figure out how things will work out? Do you trust God in the hard things as well as the easy thing? God has a big plan and wants you to be a part of it. He loves you enough that He showed you. He sent His one and only Son to die in your place, for the sin you did. Will you choose Him?
