What scares you? There are lots of things in life that make us scared or nervous. Maybe you are afraid of the dark, or of spiders or snakes! The Isrealites were also scared! Remember how long they were in the desert? 40 years! they are finally about to enter the promised land- the land that God had given them! Moses had sent 12 spies to survey the land. They found lots of amazing things- the promised land was flowing with milk and honey and other great things! But the spies did find something else. As much as the land had so many amazing things, it also had giants! And these people were scary and fierce! 10 of the spies got scared. They thought it was a bad idea to take over this land- they didn't think they could do it. But 2 of the spies, Caleb and Joshua, didn't think that. Regardless of what everyone else said, they knew that God would help them. Even when things looked scary, Caleb and Joshua knew that God would help them- all they needed to do was trust God. We can also learn a lot from this! When we are scared and worried about what is happening, we also need to remember that God helps us! All we need to do is trust Him! 🙂
