September 20, 2020, Genesis 42:6–25; ISSL Reflections Post 3

VII.
We have been watching Joseph and his brothers this week.

Do you think you have gotten to know any of them better this week? Joseph? Reuben? Simeon?

What stands out to you about Joseph and Reuben?

VIII.
In the material from The Abide Bible I posted the other day the ideas of forgiveness, mercy and a repentant cry were mentioned.

What in Joseph’s actions demonstrate or do not demonstrate forgiveness and mercy. Focus on his behavior in this scene, not on what you already might know of what comes later in the bothers’ interactions. How well do you think Joseph models (or fails to model) mercy and forgiveness. Why?

IX.
I fear that from day to day I don’t exhibit a consistent level of mercy, forgiveness or caring to those I encounter. How are you doing?
