Bible Lessons

When Joseph was a ruler in Egypt, he brought all of his family to live there. After many years, there were thousands of Israelites living in Egypt.
Our Bible Reading tells us that the new king of Egypt did not know about Joseph. The king said (verse 10), “We must make plans to stop the Israelites from growing stronger. If there is a war, the people of Israel might join our enemies. Then they might defeat us and escape from us.” So the king punished the Israelites by making them slaves. Because of that, God made terrible things happen to the land of Egypt.
The Bible teaches us some very important lessons. We can learn from these lessons what we should do or what we should not do. But when we forget what we learn from the Bible, we can make mistakes like the Egyptian king did. Study the Bible and learn how you can please God.
