Today's reading: 1 Samuel 17:38-58
From the moment he arrives on the battle ground, David is an outstanding representative of God. As I started reading our passage, it hit me that David's decision to stand up to and face Goliath truly provides us with a wonderful example 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 didn't hesitate
- He didn't concern himself with comparisons
- He didn't question the situation
- He used the tools he was fimilar with
- He "ran toward the battle"
- He remained humble
- He finished strong
What encouraged you the most from David’s example? What’s one thing you learned from David’s example about representing God that you can put into practice? Tami
