Discussion for Genesis 50

  • BSP
    Verse 15: Joseph's brothers still had a guilty conscience. Making bad decisions can cause us to have a bad conscience many years after the decision has been made.
  • Gloria
    Grace and mercy was showed to a brother that was left to die in an unknown land. God will always be for you when the world turn against you. Joseph was blessed before any thing happened to him. His father Jacob had already told him that his brothers would be his servants and they hated him for the blessing his father had put on his life. In the end he still showed the love he had in his heart.
  • A disciple
    Death is a terrible thing, and it was not God's first idea for man. God made us to be His children and to live for ever. It is a very sad that we have to die. Sin is cannot be taken lightly; for we all can see its real nature, and the terrible end we all must come to because of it. Because of Jesus, we can be reconciled to God, and the sins taken away; and we will live again. This life is not all.
  • Nnenda
    this teaches us about forgiveness, despite the hatred of Joseph's brethren on him, he forgave them of their past and dealt kindly with them. He had hope that one day his people will return to canaan.
