Read Genesis 45:15 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: If you were in Joseph’s position, would you have forgiven and helped your brothers?
Parent Note: While it would be very hard to get over the hurt feelings and trauma they caused in our lives, God calls us to forgive others as He has forgiven us.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear God, thank You for forgiving me for my sins.
You are full of grace and mercy.
Help me to forgive others who have hurt me.
In Jesus’s name, amen.
