Moses did as the Lord commanded and sent out 12 leaders to explore the Promised Land (Numbers 13).
He asked the leaders to report on the strength of the people, the quality of the land, soil, crops and trees. And he asked them to find out how well the towns were protected.
This was a fact-finding mission, not a fault-finding or fear-finding mission.
It was called the Promised Land because God promised to give it to His people. It was a foreshadowing of our Heavenly Home.
But the faithless, fearful majority ruled with fear and exaggeration ("We are like Grasshoppers!"). Crying and complaining ensued. And they never entered the land.
It's easy to complain with the majority, but It always costs us blessings.
Is there an area of your life where you've let fear and fault-finding keep you from God's promises? Do something about it today!
