The following lesson was taught in our children’s Sunday School classes on Sunday, August 26. We would encourage you to use the ideas below to review Sunday’s lesson with your family.
God Reveals Achan’s Sin
Passage: Joshua 7
Principle: Believers must turn from sin because of God’s holiness and sin’s terrible consequences.
Praise: “Trust and Obey”
Prompt: Ask your child these questions:
- Why did Israel lose the battle of Ai?
- How was God’s holiness revealed in this lesson?
Practice: Help your child apply these truths in the following ways:
- By being aware of areas where he is tempted.
- By trusting that God’s goodness is better than the satisfaction that sin promises.
This Week: As a family, read selected portions of Joshua 7.
Next Week: Joshua 23–24
Memory Verse: Romans 2:7-8
“Eternal life to those who by patient continuance in doing good seek for glory, honor and immortality; but to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness—indignation and wrath.”
