The Children of Israel had been carrying the bones of Joseph around for a generation, but they didn’t even know where Moses was buried. That’s because God buried Moses Himself—a very private internment.
How many people do you think will attend your funeral? Does it matter?
“So Moses the servant of the LORD died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the LORD. And He buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, opposite Beth Peor; but no one knows his grave to this day.” (Deuteronomy 34:5-6)
God knew that the Children of Israel would enshrine Moses and forget about moving forward. The best way to honor your past is to move on from it.
