But because my servant Caleb has a different spirit and follows me wholeheartedly, I will bring him into the land he went to, and his descendants will inherit it. Numbers 14:24
I've been saved for a number of years and know a lot of the main principles of the Bible, but I've only recently started studying the Bible (through BSF...I know I talk about it a lot but it's that good!). This year we are studying the life of Moses. Old Testament stories are truly a mystery to me. I mean I know about Adam and Eve and Noah and the Ark, but for the most part the stories in the OT are all new for me. So, I had no clue that there was a great individual by the name of Caleb in the book of Numbers.
See, my Caleb was named after Rondell's dad. I think maybe at some point a person mentioned that it is a Biblical name but that didn't stick with me.
So, I'm studying Numbers and I get to the section that talks about Caleb and how he stood up for God's principles against the other leaders of the tribes. WOW! So, I read the verse mentioned above and thought how cool of a life verse for Caleb. Of course, for him it my change over time but for now my plan is to creatively print it off and hang it in his room. I'll show you the finished product when it's done.
