“A champion named Goliath, who was from Gath, came out of the Philistine camp. He was over nine feet tall … So David triumphed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone; without a sword in his hand he struck down the Philistine and killed him” (1 Samuel 17:4, 50).
We are all familiar with the classic story of David and Goliath. This giant from Gath was enormous in size and stature. He taunted the armies of Israel and showed no respect nor did he show fear. Goliath stood strong and was the wall that Israel could not overcome. But, Israel’s greatest fear was killed by a mere shepherd boy who was on his way to see his brothers.
