Joseph Forgave

a cut-out card of Joseph

When Joseph was young, his father gave him a colorful coat. His older brothers were jealous. They sold him to be a slave in Egypt! Joseph went through many hard times. But he stayed faithful, and God blessed him. Once while he was in prison, Joseph helped the Pharaoh, the king of Egypt. Because of that, Joseph was put in charge of all the food in Egypt. A famine came to the land. Joseph’s brothers came to Egypt to find food. They didn’t recognize Joseph. Joseph decided to tell his brothers who he was. He chose to forgive and help them.
