28 Feb Proverbs 27:4

4 Wrath is cruel, anger is overwhelming, but who can stand before jealousy?

Just like last week with Jacob and Esau, we see sibling rivalry and jealousy erupt between Joseph and his brothers. Can you remember what it was about? (Father liked Joseph best; gave special robe; Joseph sharing his dreams.) Maybe Joseph got a little bit too proud and made his brothers mad? Were you ever jealous of a gift your brother or sister or cousin got that you didn’t? Have you ever been unwilling to share a gift you received? Talk with your family about what God’s word says about jealousy in Proverbs 27:4.
