Children (4)

David was the youngest boy in his family. His older brothers were in Israel’s army, fighting the Philistines. One Philistine soldier, Goliath, was over nine feet tall. He challenged the Israelites to send someone to fight him. David went to the soldiers’ camp. He heard Goliath say bad things about God. David decided he would fight Goliath.
David knew that the only way he could defeat Goliath was with God’s help. David went to meet Goliath. David said (verse 45b), “You come to me using sword, spear and javelin. But I come to you in the name of the Lord All-Powerful, the God of the armies of Israel!” David also told Goliath, “Today the Lord will let me defeat you! I will kill you” (verse 46a).
After David killed Goliath, he could have boasted about what he had done. Instead, David was humble. He wanted people to know that God had helped him. We should be humble, too. We should remember that God helps us do things. Be humble today and depend on God’ strength to help you.
