Bible Story Tips

  • We read “The Story of Joseph” beginning on page 17 of the children's Bible Storybook called Bible-Time Stories and Rhymes.

  • During story, draw attention to the key concepts for this lesson.

  • Don't forget to ask questions related to the story, for example, “Why did Joseph’s brothers throw him in the pit?”

  • This week our daughters learned about jealousy and how it can cause us to sin. They also learned what it means to forgive and how important it is to forgive others.

  • After the Bible story and discussion session, we stand up and do the interactive rhyme found in the Bible storybook

After the story and rhyme, we say a prayer that is related to the Bible story. You can either have your children repeat after you or allow them to come up with their own prayer.

Bible Song about joseph

  • The Bible song for this week is "Isn’t He Wonderful".

  • We cast the song from YouTube to the television, so our children can see the motions on the big screen.
