Joseph and His Family

Joseph had been sold into slavery by his brothers, but he remained faithful to God despite being treated unfairly. Eventually, he became an important leader in Egypt, where people were coming to get food. When Joseph's brothers appeared to buy food, Joseph could have treated them cruelly, but he didn't. These Bible activities are about the kindness Joseph extended to his brothers when he could have been harsh and unkind.
