Cliffhanger: The Story Isn't Over

This Month’s Memory Verse:

“Let us not become tired of doing good. At the right time we will gather a crop if we don’t give up.” Galatians 6:9, NIrV

This Month’s Virtue:

Grit—Refusing to give up when life gets hard

Down in a Hole

 Joseph Sold by Brothers and Joseph in Jail | Genesis 37, 39–40

For week one, we pick up God’s Big Story in Genesis 37, 39-40. We learn how Joseph was his father, Jacob’s, favorite son. Joseph’s brothers were completely jealous—with their jealousy fueled by Joseph’s dreams that had them bowing down to him. They decided to get rid of Joseph and sell him to a band of traders headed to Egypt. They covered up their actions by lying to Jacob and telling him that Joseph had died. But even though Joseph was enslaved in Egypt, God continued to show up in Joseph’s life and help him become successful—both in Potiphar’s house, and even in prison after he was falsely accused.

I can trust God no matter what.

Bottom Line

Hold on because God is with you.


As we introduce the idea of grit to our kids, we want them first and foremost to understand that the best way to have grit is by trusting God. God has been faithful to so many people throughout history. God will be with us no matter what we face. We may not understand why we must go through a hard season, but we can trust that God is with us and will give us what we need to keep going.
