Joseph the Dreamer
OBJECTIVE: To understand that God gives everyone talents that can be
used for God’s purposes.

39:1-6, 19-21

Family Discussion:
Why were Joseph’s brothers jealous of him?
Why did they get angry when they heard about his dreams?
What plot did they devise to get rid of Joseph?
Where did Joseph end up?
Was it Joseph’s fault he was a slave or that he was put in jail?
Who protected Joseph through all his troubles?
What talent did God give to Joseph that helped him to get out of jail?
How did Pharaoh reward Joseph after his dreams were explained?
How did Joseph’s gift of interpretation prove to be a blessing for Joseph as
well as others?
Challenge:
Think carefully about each member of your family. Be sure to thank God for
the particular talents that each member has been given. God never gives us
talents or gifts so that we can keep them to ourselves. He wants us to share
the good things He has given us with others! Look for ways that you can
bless those around you by using the special talents that God has given you.
Family Project: Take time to work on your family project. (Refer to list.)
