"This is the last chapter in the book of Genesis," Mama otter explained to Olivia."
Olivia sighs, "aw does this mean it's the end?"
Mama otter chuckled, "No my sweet Otter, This is just the end of the first book, We have many more to go."
Papa otter continued, "Exodus is the next book in the Bible but that's getting ahead of ourselves. In this chapter we finish the story of Joseph."
Mama otter tells Olivia, "Joseph and his brothers went back to the land of their fathers to bury Jacob. Jacob had passed away and the brothers wanted to give him a proper burial in his homeland. They all traveled back to Canaan, the land of their fathers, and gave Jacob a peaceful resting place."
Papa otter continued, "After the funeral, the brothers were worried about what Joseph might do to them for what they had done to him many years before. However, Joseph reassured them that he held no grudge against them and that he still loved them. He reminded them that God had a plan for their lives and that everything they went through was part of that plan."
Mama otter said, "With this, Joseph's brothers were at peace and they all returned to Egypt together. Time passed and Joseph grew old and eventually passed away. He was placed in a coffin in Egypt, and the people there mourned his passing."
As Mama and Papa Otter finished their story and Olivia sat there with a thoughtful expression. She learned about the importance of not holding grudges and about the love that Joseph had for his brothers. She also learned that God has a plan for our lives and that everything happens for a reason.
So, whenever Olivia feels upset or worried, she remembers the story of Joseph and his brothers and the love they shared. She takes comfort in knowing that God has a plan for her life too and that everything will work out in the end.
Lesson: Genesis 50 we learn the importance of family, respecting our elders, and the importance of love.
