How to Explain That Forgiveness Doesn't Remove Consequences 

From the lesson this week, the children will learn that Moses wrote the Book of Deuteronomy to tell the people all that God had done for them and to repeat the laws and instructions that God had given His people. At the end of the book, God told Moses that Moses would soon die, never setting foot in the promised land because of his disobedience. (See Num. 20:12.) Instead, God chose Joshua to lead Israel into the land.

A point that children may struggle with as they listen to the account of Moses's Farewell, is that even though God had forgiven Moses for his disobedience and they were reconciled, it didn't mean that Moses didn't still have to face consequences for his choices. Be sure to guide your children to understand that some of our sins will have consequences even after we are forgiven. Discuss how some sins (or results of sins) can't be taken back: murder, lying or theft (trust is destroyed), abuse or mistreatment (fear can be permanent), gossip (perceptions are altered), etc.
 

This Week's Bible Lesson and the Gospel Message

Emphasize to your children that Moses wasn’t perfect, but Moses was a good leader for God’s people. No other prophet in Israel was like Moses—until Jesus came. The Bible says Jesus deserves more glory than Moses. Jesus is our perfect leader. He died and was raised so that Moses and every believer in all of time can enter the promised land of God’s kingdom.
