Shalom chaverim veh mishpachah!

In this week’s Torah portion, Sh’lach L’kha ~ Send on your behalf (B’midbar/Numbers 13:1 – 15:41) we read the story of the “12 spies” being sent into the Promised Land to bring back a report. We know ten spies bring a terribly negative report, filled with fear, lacking all trust in their Creator. But two men display a “different spirit”. Two men – Joshua and Caleb (interestingly, one from Judah and one from Ephraim) – look at The Land through spiritual eyes, not worldly eyes. They see what the other 10 men could not see! They see the Beautiful Land, promised to their forefathers – they see the future of a people belonging to The Almighty. Why could they see it and the other ten could not? I believe it is because these two faithful men valued their inheritance. They believed their Covenant-keeping Abba would surely conquer the “giants in the Land” and defeat all their enemies.

As we pursue Torah and the promises of The Holy One, may we be firm in believing He will conquer our “giants”, whoever/whatever they may be. Surely, He goes before us as we put all our faith, hope and trust in Him and Him alone!!! May it be so for you and yours.
