When they reached the Valley of Eshkol, they cut off a branch bearing a single cluster of grapes. Two of them carried it on a pole between them.

Numbers 13:23

It must have been some ‘cluster’ to require two men to carry it on a pole! Two of the spies reported this as strong visible evidence of how lush the Promised Land was. But it wasn’t just the grapes that were super-sized! The other ten spies reported that the cities were very large (v26) and people were of great height (v32); and their view prevailed, resulting in 40 wasted years wandering in the Wilderness! There will always be those who see ‘giant’ obstacles in the way of following the Lord but let us not be put off. Our God is greater than all!
