Jesse Tree - Day 9

Person/Event: JOSEPH: God’s Providence and Showing Kindness
Scripture: Genesis 37: 1-36; 50: 15-21
Symbol: Coat

Tonight we learned about Joseph. What a great reminder about forgiveness! Even though Joseph's brothers had been mean and sold him into slavery, Joseph chose to forgive them because he knew that God had been with him all along. We talked about how we can forgive people who are mean to us or hurt our feelings. Em said she could ask God to help her forgive Hayden when she hits her ;). Oh, and this one is another story that has it's very own retold in the form of a Western. It's cute.
