The moon is big so use the 25mm. The Barlow will have a multiplication marking on it 2x 3x etc. A 2x Barlow lens will effectively double the power of the eyepiece you are using. Do not use the erecting eyepiece for anything other than land viewing. Erecting eyepieces generally reduce the amount of light reaching your eye and thus reduce brightness of the faint objects in the sky.
So basically just place the 25 mm lens in the focuser and point the scope at the moon and you will be amazed at what you can see and how bright it is.

What eyepiece do you have in the scope when trying to view the sky? (in mm)
I recommend starting out looking at the moon with the largest eyepiece you have (25mm, 20mm etc.). It is an easy target and is very impressive. Stars tend to look pretty much like little points of light in a refractor such as this anyway. Pretty boring.
Try Jupiter after you've got the moon down. You can work your way to Saturn's rings after that.

This is a small refractor style telescope--- most iof them assemble exactly alike. Look through the Meade manual page for one that is similar to yours and download it for free.
Yours is similar to this one--

Full instructions! Scope is basically the same as here:
Have fun and start out with your lowest power (biggest number) eyepiece and without the barlow. The moon is a nice place to start (and keep coming back to...;-)
