Joseph on Temptation Island!

Use Genesis 39 as your guide to go through these questions.

Who are the main characters in this story?

Make a list of Joseph's successes in verses 1-6.

What do you think was Joseph's biggest temptation in this chapter? Why?

Have several people talk about how they respond to temptation in their lives.

How did Joseph respond to the temptation? Was this a one time temptation or a regular occurrence?

How do you deal with repetitive temptations in your life?

What advice do you think Joseph would give you about resisting temptation?

What was the result of Joseph's response to temptation? Does this seem fair to you? Why or why not?

Discuss whether or not "fairness" is a part of God's plan, or whether or not "fairness" is always a good thing.

How does this episode of Joseph's life end? (vs. 21) How can this ending give you hope in your life?
