A Legacy of Spiritual Fortitude

A Legacy of Spiritual Fortitude

Caleb: the courage of one man.
Single Session Bible Study


When Lady Macbeth conspired with her husband in Shakespeare's famous drama, she urged them both to "screw your courage to the sticking place and we'll not fail." But fail they did, in spite of their resolve, for their cause was betrayal and murder. No matter how courageous they might have wanted to be, their hearts were driven by selfish ends rather than noble visions.

Courage is a virtue, not merely because it brings out the strength of righteousness in us, but because it reflects God's will for us to conquer those things that demean, diminish, and dehumanize, whether in ourselves or in our society. For the Christian there is an excellent example of courage—that of Caleb, the great general in the army of ancient Israel.
