🌸 A character study of Caleb.
• was 40 years old when he spied out the promised land for Moses (v 7)
• gave a faithful report to Moses when the others gave a fearful one (v 7)
• wholly followed the Lord (v 8 )
• because of his faithfulness, Moses promised him a portion of the land as an inheritance for his children forever (v 9)
• gave God the glory for keeping him alive for the 45 years following the deliverance of the people of Israel (v 10)
• was as strong at 85 years old as he was at 40 years old (v 11)
• asked Joshua for the land promised him (v 12)
• was given Hebron by Joshua because of his faithfulness to the Lord (v 13)
I love the faithfulness of Caleb. And this reminder that the Lord is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him (Hebrews 11:6).
Happy Friday, friends. You are loved.
