Tuesday Morning Recap

Gentlemen,

Tuesday we continued our series on Joseph with a discussion of Chapter 44.

Joseph continues to test his brothers and they are feeling the heat.

“So now, if the boy is not with us when I go back to your servant my father and if my father, whose life is closely bound up with the boy’s life sees that the boy isn’t there, he will die.”

We spent most of our time discussing how times of trial have strengthened our faith. Grady noted that when we suffer we quickly learn what matters most and who we can count on.

Jack added that when we are stripped of our illusion of control we begin to lean on God. We can trust that a loving God will never give us more than we can take and will continue to mold us into the image of Christ.

This chapter highlights why we need God and and Godly friends.

Next week Genesis 45. Consider the following questions:

1) Why does Joseph choose this moment to reveal himself to his brothers?

2) What is the initial response of Joseph’s brothers?

3) What does this chapter teach us about God?

See you Tuesday.

John
