I knew about Caleb. I knew about Othniel. I did not know Othniel was Caleb’s younger brother (Judges 3:9-11). The influence of Caleb following God wholeheartedly made a difference in Othniel being used of God as the first leader after Joshua died and the first judge of Israel who led them in victory over Moab and in peace for forty years. But spiritual influence is not enough alone. The Spirit of the Lord came upon him to position as Israel’s judge and war leader. Sometimes the Holy Spirit calls us to war because war is often the means to peace.
