David and Goliath

Season after Pentecost, Proper 7, Year B, Old Testament
Scripture: I Samuel 17 (1a, 4-11, 19-23) 32-49

 This story shows David’s courage but also his faith in God. It is not his ability as a warrior that defeats the enemy, it is his faith in and service to God. Goliath is made out to be some sort of beast – almost a monster. He then represents all our fears and needs for a powerful God. No mere mortal can defeat such a beast with their own power. We must call upon God to help us.
