Sojourning Under the Sun: Sabbath Stall (Numbers 14)

One would think that after experiencing the passover, the exodus, and the crossing of the Red Sea that the end of the story for Israel would be, “and they lived happily ever after.”  This is not the way that the story ends.  In fact, the story is still going on even today.  How come the people of God did not find their full rest in the promised land?  How come they did not find their full joy and contentment in the Lord? Does the Lord deprive His people of something or is the problem even deeper? Is there something that applies to us today?
