Josh 7;8
In Children's Church we reviewed last week's verse Joshua 1:8 and 9.

The scheduled verse for this week's lesson was Joshua 23:14b

"you know in all your hearts and in all your souls that  
not one word of all the good words  
which the Lord your God spoke 
concerning you has failed;  
they all have been fulfilled for you, 
not one of them has failed

This memory verse reminds the Israelites of what they should already know.
God is faithful and He never fails.
Not one of God's words have failed.
Use the content and the truth in this verse to help your child see that their hope must be in the Lord, who is faithful.

During the lesson, we talked about the fact that it is a sin to do something God told you not to do.
Whether that is taking a Golden Oreo you were told not to take (our in-class example) OR taking gold, silver, and clothes that God told you not to take from a fallen city (our Bible example).

Achan saw gold, silver, and clothes.
Achan coveted gold, silver, and clothes.
Achan stole gold, silver, and others.
Achan used deception and hid the gold, silver, and clothes.
Achan had to be punished for his sin and he was stoned.

If I am a child of God, Jesus Christ has taken my sin upon himself.
If I am not a child of God, I will be punished for eternity.  

Also, our sin impacts other people.

Our study Joshua continues to remind us that our victory is in the Lord.
