Twelve men, one from eah of the tribes of Israel, were sent by Moses to spy out the land of Canaan (which God promised to give to the Israelites) Two of the spies (Joshua and Caleb) returned with good reports full of faith and enthusiasm, and eventually led Israel into that land of promise. The other ten spies saw the same land of Canaan, returned with bad reports full of discouraging faithlessness and fear. What lessons can we learn from those ten faithless and rebellious spies?
