- Share your notes from the teaching, what impacted you? Was there a moment you sensed the Holy Spirit?
22 “Didn’t I tell you not to sin against the boy?” Reuben asked. “But you wouldn’t listen. And now we have to answer for his blood!”
23 Of course, they didn’t know that Joseph understood them, for he had been speaking to them through an interpreter. 24 Now he turned away from them and began to weep. When he regained his composure, he spoke to them again. Then he chose Simeon from among them and had him tied up right before their eyes.
25 Joseph then ordered his servants to fill the men’s sacks with grain, but he also gave secret instructions to return each brother’s payment at the top of his sack. He also gave them supplies for their journey home. 26 So the brothers loaded their donkeys with the grain and headed for home.
27 But when they stopped for the night and one of them opened his sack to get grain for his donkey, he found his money in the top of his sack. 28 “Look!” he exclaimed to his brothers. “My money has been returned; it’s here in my sack!” Then their hearts sank. Trembling, they said to each other, “What has God done to us?”
What do you observe about the passages? Take turns sharing from observations from the text or your personal notes from service.
- What are some ways Joseph showed mercy and grace?
Pastor Justice talks about how mercy is when you don’t get what you do deserve and grace is when we get what we don’t deserve.
- Share a time when God “let you off the hook” through mercy.
- Share a time God has given something to you you didn’t deserve through grace.
