Read Genesis 39-40
We are back to Joseph and the saga following his being sold by his brothers into slavery. Remember in James this spring we read about how trials develop our perseverance and faith? We can watch this happen in Joseph and marvel at his responses.
- Where do you see faith developing in these 2 chapters?
- I love that in each situation, we are told “the Lord was with him.” It reminds me of Hagar early in Genesis when she called God ‘the God who sees me.” In your current situation, how do you sense that the Lord is with you?
- In the midst of hard times, why do you think Joseph does not turn away from God in anger?
- How do you respond to the Lord during trials and pain?
