WEEK FIVE: EARLY LEARNERS

OCTOBER 14 - 18

Recommended Preschool - 3rd Grade with their families. 

God, you take care of us and stay with us, no matter what happens.
Help us to see you and to love you more clearly and more dearly every day. Amen.

 

Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.
Proverbs 19:21

The Forgiving Prince

THE STORY: Joseph's Dreams Come True

“The Forgiving Prince” found on page 76 of the Jesus Storybook Bible

 

THE DISCUSSION

If you were one of Joseph’s brothers, how would you feel about his dreams?


What would it have been like to be Joseph, to be his father’s favorite but hated by his
brothers?


Do you think Joseph was wise?


Joseph is the descendant chosen by God to rule over the others. God is in control here,
and God’s purposes are not always clear to us. Talk about ways you can use
patience and faith to be more wise to God’s plans for your life.

THE ACTIVITY

Color or decorate Joseph's coat here.

THE BLESSING

Take turns saying to each family member, while making the sign of the cross on the
other's forehead:
May you be wise to God’s plans for your life.

MEMORY VERSE

 

For I know the plans I have for you… Jeremiah 29:11

Catherine Collier talks about the themes in this week's lesson!
