Representing God
 
Today's reading: 1 Samuel 17:38-58
 
From the moment he arrived on the battle ground, what we see of David is that he was an outstanding representative of God. As I started reading our passage, it hit me that David's standing up to and taking on Goliath is a wonderful example for us as we represent and stand up for Christ in the world today. So I started jotting down the things I noticed from David's example that I could put into practice. Here are a few of the things I came up with:
  • He was confident in God
  • He wasn't ashamed
  • He didn’t hesitate
  • He didn't concern himself with comparisons
  • He didn't question the situation
  • He used the tools he was familiar with
  • He "ran toward the battle" (vs. 48)
  • He remained humble
  • He finished strong
What encouraged you the most from David's example? What's one thing you learned about representing God that you can put into practice? Tami
