The Bible is filled with the faith stories of Bible Heroes!

Bible Heroes loved God, had a relationship with Him, obeyed Him, and served people.

As a Bible hero, Joseph’s MISSION was FORGIVENESS!

Do you think that mission would be hard to accomplish?

How do you think Joseph felt when his brothers threw him into the well?

How do you think he felt when he was sold as a slave or when he was a prisoner?

Joseph was betrayed by his brothers, was a prisoner and a slave. Don’t you think that forgiveness towards his brothers would have been really hard after all that?

Joseph was a hero because he chose to forgive his brothers. He chose to let go of his anger towards them. Joseph was not able to complete his MISSION of FORGIVENESS without the help of God.

God was there to help him forgive his brothers.

Do you still feel angry at them?

Exercise 2:

Take some time to pray for that person! Pray that God will help you to forgive them for what they did to you. Pray that God will bless them.

Exercise 3: Take some time to read this verse and memorize it

Ephesians 4:32 Be kind to each other, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you. May Holy Spirit remind you & help you to be a hero this week by forgiving others! Amen
