There have always been those who sought to go outside the Lord’s pattern for His Church and to try to circumvent Priesthood leaders. But, by the same token, there have also been those who have followed the Lord’s pattern throughout history. In this chapter, we have a fine example of the latter. Though Caleb had been promised a blessing from the Lord Himself, he did not presume to claim that blessing outside the established order. Instead he went to Joshua – the head of Christ’s Kiingdom of God on Earth – and requested the promised blessing (which was given to him). What a wonderful example that sets for each of us.
