    The story recorded in the books of numbers chapter 13 is very educative for us christians of today. It is very obvious that that the land belongs to them thus they were the original owners of the land, but because they have compromised their faith in the lord before their enemies by suggesting that, they were just like grasshoppers, they equally died just like ordinary grasshoppers. Nevertheless, Joshua and caleb displayed their faith in the lord, even in that hopeless time, and that gave them the oppotunity to possess the land in expense of the whole multitude. It is my prayer
    that the lord would strenghten our faith in order to persevere even in difficult times as the two did. Remember to speak the language of the minority-Joshua and Caleb but not that of the majority- the multitude.....
