In this episode, the Monkees learn an important lesson: Deception may work for a moment, but the truth will eventually come out. "Be sure your sins will find you out" (Numbers 32:23). Davy was willing to take the punishment for his misdeeds, even though it hurt him a great deal. However, the love of his friends drove them to wild exploits in order to get him off. God is just and demands that the price of sin be paid. However, His love for us caused Him to pay the price for us. "God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8). That doesn’t always mean that the consequences of our actions are removed, as they were (mostly) for Davy when his grandfather allowed him to stay in America, but it does allow for forgiveness, healing, and eternal life.
