When Moses sent them to explore Canaan, he said, “Go up through the Negev and on into the hill country. See what the land is like and whether the people who live there are strong or weak, few or many.

– Numbers 13:17-18 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

As Moses is commissioning the spies to look at the Promised Land, he never asked them to determine IF they could take the land, only the details of where they were going. Unfortunately, the spies took on more responsibility than they were given, and an entire generation died in the wilderness because of it. Don’t plan a house when you are asked to only build a room. Our delusions of grandeur can have a negative impact on many people around us.
