“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28
Because Joseph was the youngest of his brothers, he was favored by his dad. When Joseph was given the coat of many colors his brothers became jealous and sold him to be a slave. However, What man intended for evil God used for good. After many years and hard work Joseph was put in charge of all of Egypt and reunited with His family. There will be times when life is not fair, others are against you and it seems nothing good can come from the mess you are in. Keep serving God because he always brings good from evil.
As we dug deeper into the story of Joseph and the colorful robe elementary did two fun activities! First they divided skittles by color in a jar and filled each jar with water and left the skittles to dissolve in water.
While waiting they raced in teams against each other to see which team could wrap their team mate in a colorful robe from streamers the fastest.
What happened to the skittles? They dissolved leaving jars of colorful paint. So we painted Joseph’s robe.
We learn a lot in Kids Life but we always learn while having fun!
