March 1 // That's not fair!

Read Genesis 39:19-20 out loud with your family.

 

Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.

 

Q: Your dog knocked over a lamp and broke it. How would you feel if your parent accused you of breaking the lamp? 

 

Parent Note: That’s unfair. While we have no evidence that the dog broke the lamp, our parents should be willing to listen to our side of the story. Potiphar wasn’t going to take the word of a slave over his own wife, so Joseph ended up in jail. 

 

FAMILY PRAYER:

Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:

 

Dear God, thank You for being a loving Father.
I know that even when life isn’t fair,  You are still good.
Help me to be fair and honest with others.
In Jesus’s name, amen.
