The Israelites would soon enter Canaan, and Moses was not allowed to go with them. Before God took him to heaven, God told Moses to instruct the people, to remind them of what God had done for them. He retaught this group of young people the original covenant that God had made with their parents when they came out of Egypt. Moses encouraged the people to remember these things and pass them on to their children—transmitting the faith. In the same way God encourages us to share the gospel message with our children.
