In Parshat Shelach we have the biggest tragedy in the entire Chumash, great people leading the nation to reject the mission of entering the land of Canaan. A key phrase in their report reveals a big part of the issue. In describing the great size of the local population they claimed “we were like grasshoppers in their eyes”; but they preceded that statement by declaring “we were like grasshoppers in OUR eyes”. The sages explain that what we have here is a crisis of confidence, they were insisting that they, along with the nation, were not up to the challenge of leaving the cocoon of desert living and being on their own spiritually and physically in the promised land.

The Torah insists that everyone has to develop their own sense of self-worth as the Talmud declares: everyone should assert that the world was created for me. Of course we have to be on guard for arrogance but each of us has to strive to determine our full capability in life.
