A Boy and His Slingshot

A Boy and His Slingshot

The life and rule of King David are recorded in the Old Testament. He is seen as a hero of great faith who overcame many obstacles during his reign. However, David’s face is clearly seen in a scene before his coronation. As he fought Goliath, God used his weakness so others will see and trust in His strength. Join us for the third message in The Little Things to understand how a foolish boy was able to shame a great army with a few little stones.

Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword and with a spear and with a javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you down . . . that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel, and that all this assembly may know that the Lord saves not with sword and spear. For the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give you into our hand.” 

1 Samuel 17:45-47
