If you’re familiar with Old Testament history, you may recall that Caleb was one of 12 men sent by Moses to scout out the Promised Land more than a year after the Israelites left Egypt.
Their job was to get the lay of the land, not to decide if the people were capable of conquering it. But when the group returned, the majority’s report focused on the giants in the land—how fearsome they were and how Israel didn’t stand a chance against them.
This, of course, wasn’t true. God never intended for the Israelites to accomplish anything on their own. But only two spies, Caleb and Joshua, believed the truth about the situation.
