Colors of Life, rainbows of faith
When Pastor Evan preached on Joseph he spoke about each event in the life of this patriarch of the Bible. Joseph was given a multi-colored coat as a present from his father. I have drawn Joseph in his coat, but in each patch of color I put an event that occurred in his life.
On both sleeves I have written the lesson Joseph teaches us. Follow God no matter the results. Even when Joseph was thrown into a cistern and left to die, he believed in God. He was sold into slavery, but this did not cause him to lose trust. His faith stayed strong after he was thrown in prison for something he didn’t do. In the end God used Joseph to save his people, and the Egyptian people, from mass starvation.
Don’t give up! Continue to trust. God has a plan.
