The following lesson was taught in our children’s Sunday School classes on Sunday, April 15. 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: He who conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will find compassion. Proverbs 28:13*
