Courage to be Different

BibleWhen everyone is criticising someone else it is easier to agree than be different. When others are negative towards a plan, it is more comfortable to say the same things.

Twelve spies went into the Promised Land. Most of them were afraid. Caleb was prepared to be different. He believed the Children of Israel could overcome the giants in the land. They had to wait a long time, but in the end, God only allowed Caleb and Joshua into the land. Sometimes it pays to be different.

Num 14:24 (CEV)  But my servant Caleb isn’t like the others. So because he has faith in me, I will allow him to cross into Canaan, and his descendants will settle there.

PRAYER: Lord, give me the courage to stand up for what is right
