The story of David and Goliath, a story that people perceive as a metaphor or a real life event that took place between a small framed boy (probably close to being a teenager) who truly didn’t have much to offer, based on worldly standards. He didn’t come from a wealthy family, wasn’t even the most popular among his peers. He only tended to sheep and made music with strings.
He would be the last person that anybody would think of to face the large giant that was Goliath. Goliath was the opposite of David, he was a man that people feared, looked up to and one that appeared to never taste defeat. Even though David didn’t come from much, even though he wasn’t the largest he was the bravest. And his heart was larger than anyone around him.
Sure, David had his own problems and hang-ups, but I often feel as David probably did as a youth. I’ve often felt incredibly small in this world, despite talents, passion’s and longings to help others. It’s easy to feel like you can keep sliding down the ladder.
The thought came to me as I was stepping out of the shower, that even though I may appear to be small in the world’s eyes I am like a giant in God’s eyes. Remember that when
no one else see’s you. God does and he loves you.
