Not Your Average Joe - Pride Leads to Humbling

When God wants to empower someone, He first humbles them.

  • What’s one idea from the message that stood out to you? Why do you think it grabbed you?

  • Where do you fall in birth order? Do you feel like the stereotypes of your place fit who you are? Why or why not?

Read: Genesis 37:2-36

  • In what way did Jacob’s actions and attitudes towards his sons affect their actions?

  • Did Joseph do anything wrong in this story? Why or why not?

  • What do you imagine was Joseph’s reasoning for telling his family about the dreams?

  • Reuben tried to save his brother. Did Reuben do anything wrong? Why or why not?

  • Have you ever “sat down for a meal” while someone suffering injustice was screaming for help right beside you?

  • If you were ever the one screaming for help, did you receive help? Were there people there for you?

  • How do you react when you see or face injustice?

  • What do you do when you don’t have the answer for why you’re going through what you’re going through?

Prayer: Pray that you never forget God is there, even when bad things are happening.
