Day 10: Joseph – Genesis 37

There was a boy who loved God. His name was Joseph. Joseph had many brother but they did not like him. His brothers were jealous of him. They wanted to hurt Joseph. They grabbed Joseph and put him in a well. They were not kind to Joseph. Later on, the brothers decided to sell Joseph to some men. The men took Joseph to another country far away. But God watched over Joseph.

The Fifth Commandment says – “Thou Shalt Not Kill”
This means: Do not hurt other people – ever!
a. Do not speak mean words
b. Do not kick people
c. Do not knock people down
d. Do not step on other people’s feet
e. Do not scream at others
f. Do not tell anyone to “shut-up” – this would hurt their feelings and God’s ears

God wants us to help other people whenever we can.
He does not want us to say or do anything that would hurt anyone.
-Kolton Everett

Lord, help me be kind and good as You are.
