(Because he had been born to him in his old age)
- What gift did his dad give him? (A coat of many colours,

c. Teach the Lesson (15 minutes)
Joseph’s father said to him, "Your brothers are out
tending my sheep. I want you to go check and make sure that they
‘Nkhani ya Yosefe' PowerPoint
Read: Genesis 37: 17-24
Joseph reminds us that it is possible to patiently endure,
continuing to put our trust in God’s plan. He spent
13 years in God’s waiting room. That’s how long
it took for God to prepare Joseph for what was about to
And as he waited, Joseph served others with genuine concern and
he refused to allow God’s dream to die. He trusted God’s
plan and knew that God was with him.
How do we deal with challenges? Oh, I wish it could be a one-time
decision. I wish we could just do the right thing and be done with
it, but we have learned from Joseph that trusting God is an ongoing
challenge. It is a lifetime commitment. There will be ups and downs.
There will be times when it will seem much easier to just give in.
But Joseph reminds us that it is possible to be faithful over a
long period of time in very difficult circumstances
What kind of attitude do we have when life doesn’t go as
we think it should? What do we do when it seems like God has forgotten
Like Joseph, we might be tempted to give up, but hopefully we also
hang on and continue doing what we need to do.
We think of some of what the apostle Paul went through –
beatings, and shipwrecks, and all kinds of abuse – and this
is what Paul told the Church in Corinth.
2 AKORINTO 4:7-9
“7 Koma tili nacho chuma ichi m'zotengera zadothi, kuti
ukulu woposa wamphamvu ukhale wa Mulungu, wosachokera kwa ife; 8ndife
osautsika monsemo, koma osapsinjika; osinkhasinkha, koma osakhala
kakasi; 9olondoleka, koma osatayika; ogwetsedwa, koma osaonongeka;”
Paul had a rough life, but he also refused to let the dream die.
Paul continued living the Christian life.
Paul, like Joseph, in the waiting room of disappointment, continued
to hang on to God’s plan for his life. Both men continued
putting their trust in God.
Before we close, I must tell you that this is not the end of the
story of Joseph and his brothers. The story does have a happy ending
and Joseph is reunited with his father and brothers. But for today,
we learn the lesson of the terrible things that happen because of
the sin of jealousy.
Sometimes bad things happen to good people,
but God is still in control and He still had a plan for Joseph’s

6. APPLICATION / ENCOUNTERING GOD:
When you get hurt you need to take care of your injuries. When you
fall down and graze your knee you need a plaster. When someone hurts
you or you are in a shocking or scary situation, you need to take
care of your heart. You need to make sure that you don't end up
hating or being troubled by fear. You put a plaster on your heart
by talking about your troubles and not keep any bad feelings inside.
God wants to remind you that He will always be there to listen to
you. He says he will never leave you or forsake you.
Have the children write about times when they have felt afraid,
betrayed and separated from loved ones. Create a ‘Heaven Corner’
with a gold cloth on a chair with Jesus’ crown and a wooden
cross covered with a red cross to represent His blood. Get them
to come and place the papers at the foot of the cross and leave
those experiences there.
