GOD COMMANDS THAT I RESPECT MY NEIGHBOR’S THINGS. In the Bible account “Achan’s Sin,” students learn how the devil tempts Achan to take what does not belong to him. Through the death and resurrection of Jesus, God forgives us when we are tempted to take what is not ours and strengthens us to respect our neighbor. Discuss How can we show our neighbors that we respect their property?
