Jospeh Forgives His Brothers

It’s often that we look at Joseph in this story and focus on how he forgave his brothers. But, aren’t we more like the brothers who need forgiveness? 

We see that Joseph instantly forgave his brothers… This is what Christ does for us. 

The brothers didn’t and couldn’t earn their forgiveness, just like we can’t. 

All the brothers needed was to be sorry for what they had done. Joseph saw they were different – he saw their regret. 

When we are like Jospeh’s brothers, forgiveness is also just a moment away.

What you'll need:

  • Printer/paper
  • Coloring tools
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Child Involvement:

  • Coloring
  • Cutting
  • Glueing 



  • Class tip 1: Teachers, have a craft made before class as an example of how the craft should look. 
  • Class tip 2: Teachers, consider pre-scoring the fold lines before handing out the craft so it’s easier for little children to fold in the right place. Use a metal ruler and go over the lines with a scoring tool or butter knife. 
  • Print, color and cut out. 
  • Fold along fold lines, and glue to corresponding tabs. Refer to photos for guidance. 
  • Note: I changed where the men on the left are glued to after I took the photos just incase you’re confused!
