Imagination 3 of 4: Goliath vs. David‘s Imagination

October 28, 2021

Bible stories require imagination. The story of David and Goliath is no exception. You don't go up against a giant without a healthy imagination.

In 1 Samuel 16, at great danger to himself, Samuel anoints David in front of his brothers, who are jealous of him.

Goliath is described as an imposing human - like a tank.   David wants to know what he will gain if he kills Goliath. Does David imagine he will get into the palace by marrying the king's daughter?

How did David kill the lion and the bear? Did he use his sling like an underhand and overhand club (without releasing the stone)?

How would you counsel the boy David before he goes into battle against Goliath? Would you recommend he go or not?

What has David been practicing and dreaming as he keeps his sheep? Does he want to be the best shepherd in Israel or to be the best soldier?

What was David's spiritual journey?  What is yours?
