Welcome back! This week we will see more of the dynamic between Joseph and his brothers. We will see how his brothers want to kill him, but Reuben stands up to the other’s to defend his life. My APPLY for this week will be about a time when I had to stand up for myself in a station when my peers were making a poor choice. I hope you all have a wonderful week, and happy reading!

As I said in one of the preview videos, I like to have posters of the memory verse as well as note cards around my house and my car to help me with the memory work. You can download a FREE 8.5″ x 11″ poster and a 3″ x 5″ card by clicking the image below.

Reuben is such a boss right now! We all know how tough it is to stand up to a bully, or to do what’s right in a room full of people doing what’s wrong. Reuben is such an inspiration to us in this moment. Not only was he standing up for what is right, he was standing against his siblings. It makes me think of a quote from Dumbledore, “It takes a great deal of courage to stand up to your enemies, but a great deal more to stand up to your friends.” Dumbledore is right and Reuben is an example of it being done right!
The second night I went away to college I went with my (random sophomore) roommate’s friend’s dorm. Basically as soon as we sat down they pulled a baggy of weed out. I don’t smoke, never have, probably never will. I don’t judge people that do, it’s just a life choice for myself. However, marijuana is illegal in our state and against the rule of our school, so I’m a little uncomfortable being in a dorm room with a baggy of weed on the table.
I don’t think I handled this situation quite right, but I excused myself from the situation. I checked my phone, and announced to the room that I was going to go hang out with one of my friends. I had no desire to be in that environment, even if they were cool college sophomores and I was a nerdy freshman on my second day. No amount of popularity is worth getting kicked out of school or arrested. Or in Reuben’s case, eternal damnation for murdering your brother.
