We come to the end of the beginning this week. Session 13 is our final lesson in the book of Genesis. Next week we will embark on our journey through Exodus.
As we come to the conclusion of this unit we are confronted with a most difficult reality of the human heart: the inability to forgive others. How much additional pain has been introduced into our lives because we have not been able to forgive those who have hurt us? How freeing it would be if we could trust our God and feel no burden to exact vengeance upon our enemies?
We will watch as Joseph becomes “one who forgets” and is enables to be “one who is fruitful.” As we watch his life, may our hearts move quickly to Christ who makes all forgiveness possible.
