After a long journey from the land of Egypt and through the wilderness, the Israelites finally arrive on the outskirts of the land that God promised to give them— a land “flowing with milk and honey.” Through Moses, God instructs the Israelites to select 12 men (one from each of the 12 tribes) to go and explore the land. These 12 scouts are to bring back information about the kind of people who live there, how strong they are, whether or not the cities are fortified and the quality of the farmland. Moses even tells them to bring back some grapes from the promised land so the people of Israel can see for themselves the kind of fruit that grows there. After 40 days, when the 12 scouts return from their journey through the promised land, they share what they've learned with their countrymen. However, instead of going forward to take the land that God promised to give them, the people opt to return to Egypt. How is this story relevant to our lives? What can we learn from the error of the Israelites? We'll discuss this in today's Bible Study on Numbers 13:1, 25-14:4.
