This week we are learning that God has a big picture through ups and downs. Joseph has a lot of ups and downs. His brothers sell him into slavery. He becomes a respected servant but then goes to jail. Finally, the Pharaoh asks Joseph to interpret his dream and then gives him an important role. God has a big picture through ups and downs. Share your ups and downs with each other at dinner tonight.
Fun for the family!
-Find something you can use as a dry-erase surface, such as a window or mirror.
-Set out washable or dry-erase markers.
-Draw the axes of a graph, with the left axis numbered 1-10 and the bottom axis showing the days of the week.
-Assign each family member a color of marker.
-Each day, everyone will add a dot to show what number best reflects that day. If it was an amazing day, that’s a 10. If it was a horrible day, that’s a 1.
-Pray for each other daily based on the graph.
-At the end of the week, connect each person’s dots and discuss how you saw God through all the ups and downs of the week.
