When the war between the Israelites and Philistines took place, a giant named Goliath would shout out a challenge each day to any Israeli who would defeat him in battle. Nobody was brave enough to face him. When David heard him challenge the armies of God, he told King Saul that he would fight the giant. King Saul was worried as David was not a warrior, but he put his own royal armour on David and gave him his blessing. David asked that the armour is removed as he was not used to it. He chose instead to face the giant dressed as a simple shepherd boy; his slingshot his only weapon. As the giant came towards him, David slung a stone in his slingshot and shot the giant. The small stone sunk into Goliath’s head and the giant died instantly. The Philistines tried to flee when their hero died, but the Israeli army cut them off and defeated them.

Moral

God does not look at the appearance of a person, but instead looks at a person’s heart. He does not need His people dressed in fancy armour to help them defeat their enemies.
