We see other works of art every day that have a Maker and a plan. We pass them on the street, at work, and every Sunday they play around our feet. Are you thinking what I’m thinking? Yes, people! People are God’s works of art. He is our maker. And, He has a plan for each of us, because He made us and loves us.
In this week’s lesson, Joseph is put in jail for something he didn’t do yet continues to trust that God has a plan for him.
Joseph was thrown in jail! Can you believe it? But you know what? Joseph chose to still trust God and believe that God had a plan for him. Joseph knew he could trust God’s plan, even when it was hard. And so can we!
