Due to the sin of the parents the children are not allowed into Israel until the parents all died.

Numbers 14:33 Your children will roam in the wilderness for forty years and bear your guilt until the last of your carcasses in the wilderness. 

This is interesting. As God could have just said the parents won't be allowed into Israel but the children can go without the parents. Yet God did not allow the children in until all the parents passed away. It does seem to suggest that God DID NOT want the children to live in Israel by leaving their parents behind. Living in Israel is great but don't move away from your parents to do this. Either this or that to some degree the children could not benefit by the parents sin by people able to leave their parents in the desert and not have to care for them when they get old. It is very interesting.  Of course today we have planes to get far quickly but living far away from your parents is a big expense. But to move to Israel to live far away from your parents may not be so simple. Same thing with people who divorce and then move their children to Israel to get away from the ex. In this case I certainly think is bad especially is by doing this you can teach the child to hate the other parent.

What are your thoughts on this.
