God is with Joseph

Parent & Teacher Guide

Here’s some helpful hints and tips for making the most of New Life Kids @Home materials.

We jump to the true story of Joseph for the next 4 weeks. Joseph lives through some very hard times… but he also knows God’s promise and blessing. God can be trusted!

Joseph famously said to his brothers who had mistreated him:

“Don’t be afraid. Am I in the place of God? You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. So then, don’t be afraid. I will provide for you and your children.” And he reassured them and spoke kindly to them. [Genesis 50:19-21]

Joseph is confident of God’s promise to be with him and bless him.

Activity & Intro

Memory Verse Walking Trail: One or two family members go for a walk and write phrases of the memory verse on pavements in chalk with an arrow directing to next phrase. Each phrase might be 50~100m apart. Other family members follow behind finding and reading the words:

And we know // that God // causes everything to // work together // for the good // of those who // love God and // are called according // to his purpose // for them. //
Romans 8:28
