Bring up the story of David and Goliath with most people, and they will be familiar with the epochal event that took place thousands of years ago in a valley in Israel. Hands down, David and Goliath are doubtlessly the most famous characters in the Old Testament. Christians and non-Christians alike can recall what happened. But there is so much more to the biblical account than a shepherd boy who killed a giant. Between the lines of 1 Samuel 17 are timeless, relevant, usable principles that apply to us as we face the “giants” of our own world—giants that are dwarf-like when compared to Jesus who empowers us.
