Bible Story: Genesis 39:6-21 (Joseph Refuses to Do Wrong)
Need to Know: Love Being Kind
After watching the Bible Story video, ask your child these questions:
- What are some good things that happen when you choose to show kindness to others?
- Why is it difficult to be kind in situations when you feel frustrated or angry?
- Can you think of a way that you have been kind in a difficult situation?
- How can you love being kind this week at school? At home? At church?
It is much easier to be kind to others when we reflect on the great kindness that Jesus showed to us. Romans 5:8 says that "but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us." So many times our children will want to justify being unkind by calling out the actions of others, the unfairness. We have to point them back to grace. We all need to be reminded of who saved us and what we've been saved from. We don't deserve grace at all...not even a little bit. It is purely God's goodness and kindness toward us. So when we look at others through that lens, it should make it a little easier to be kind toward others. Let's remind our kids of what great kindness God has shown us.
