Joseph Shares Food
BIG IDEA: God wants us to share.
- When the King had a bad dream, who was able to help? (The King's servant remembered how Joseph helped with his dream in prison, and told the King about Joseph. God helped Joseph tell the King the meaning of his dream.)
- What was in the King's dream? (7 fat cows, 7 skinny cows)
- Joseph said there would be 7 years of good crops, and then 7 years with no crops. The King put him in charge of making sure everyone would have food. What did Joseph tell his helpers to save? And where did they put it? (Save all the extra grain. Put it in barns.)
- What did Joseph do when the people had no food to eat? (He sold them grain.)
ACTION PLAN: Name something you can share this week.
PRAYER: Ask God to help us share with people wherever we go.
JUNE MEMORY VERSE:
"The Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9
BIG IDEA: It is wise to choose to make God number one in my life!
- What did Mary do that made Martha upset? (Mary chose to listen to Jesus and enjoy His company instead of help with all the work.)
- Why was Jesus pleased with what Mary chose to do? (Mary put Jesus first.)
- What are some ways you can show that God is #1 in your life this week? (Read the Bible. Memorize a Bible verse. Tell others what I know about Jesus. Sing a song telling God that I love Him.)
CONNECTING TO JESUS: Both Martha and Mary loved Jesus. Martha was busy doing all these things FOR Jesus, that she neglected to BE with Jesus. Mary had all those busy jobs to do, too, but she chose to sit at Jesus' feet. How we spend our time shows what matters most to us. When we put God first, it shows in what we do. It is wise to spend time with Him -- it is too important to be missed.
ACTION PLAN: Choose a way to spend time with God each day!
