Some of the significant events that the children of Israel experienced, including their final departure from Egypt, required faith in God and His promises. But it was their lack of faith ultimately that kept those over 20 years of age from entering the promised land. So what have we learned? How are we doing today with our own faith? Do we make excuses for our sins and lack of faith? What can we do to avoid what happened to the Israelites who "...could not enter in because of their unbelief"? (Hebrews 3:19)
