Explain to the children how Moses sent twelve men, one from each tribe of Israel, into the land of Canaan to spy it out. Tell them how they found grapes so large they had to be carried by two men on a staff.
Explain to them how they found it a good land, but that they also saw strong people, walled cities and giants. Tell the children that Joshua and Caleb were the only two that wanted to go into the land because they believed that the Lord was in control (Numbers 13-14)
