Reading: The Twelve Spies (Numbers 13:1~14:34)
Moses gave the twelve spies specific instructions to carry out. He told them to go into all the land and see what kind of a country it is. Is the soil rich or poor? Are the towns they live in open or fortified? Are the people who dwell in it strong or weak? Is it a good or a bad country?
We have here the twelve spies who were given forty days to complete the mission. They were expected after the forty days were completed to give a report on what they saw in this land that the LORD promised them.
The twelve spies all went and observed the same things, yet only two of them returned with positive reports. The other ten were all negative and full of fear and doubts.
The ten spies started their reported on a positive note about the overflowing of the land with milk and honey. They then changed their arguments to negative declarations. Their description of the land was that it was a dreadful place and the people who possessed it were very powerful people.
We should never allow fear and doubt to make us doubt the LORD. The ten spies sinned against God by not trusting God's vision and not having faith in the Almighty.
They sinned further by causing the entire community to murmur against Moses and spread rumors about the land.
