I finally made it through Leviticus and have started Numbers. (If you are behind, don't quit, pick up where you left off!) Moses is recapping the history of Israel, and what is the main thing he says? "You did not believe God, and therefore you had to wander around in the desert for 40 years." But he says something different about 2 men; out of the thousands of Israelites who came out of Egypt, he says something good about only 2 of them. Caleb and Joshua. Read what Moses says about Caleb, "... he followed the Lord wholeheartedly." Throughout their wanderings many people did some good things. The priests and Levites did their jobs, the artists and builders built the Tabernacle. But when it came down to the end, the summation of this part of the story, Caleb was commended and rewarded and remembered. I pray that when I am gone people can say about me, about Becky Givens, "she followed the Lord wholeheartedly."
