Things to Think About, all or some: Can you think of any times in your own life where something positive was able to come out of what seemed like a really negative/situation? Describe it, how did you feel in it? How did you feel after? Thinking about a time when you had to think about whether to forgive someone who was mean, unkind, or horrible, or not. Knowing how you felt, how do you think Joseph might have been feeling when he saw his brothers? Who did God use to help him to make his choice about what to do? Who are those people in your life? How could the story have been very different if Joseph hadn’t chosen to forgive?
