“Joseph Prepares for Hard Times,” Friend, March 2022
Joseph was a prophet. He lived in Egypt. One night Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, had a strange dream. He asked Joseph what the dream meant.
God helped Joseph understand the dream. For seven years, people would have plenty of food. Then for seven years, they wouldn’t have enough. Joseph told Pharaoh.
Joseph said they should save food now. Then they would be ready for hard times. Pharaoh put Joseph in charge of saving food. Joseph worked hard.
When the seven years of famine came, the people had enough food to eat. They even had enough to share with others.
I can prepare now. With God’s help, I can get through hard times!
