When Israel’s army saw Goliath, all of them ran away from him. That’s because they were so afraid. — 1 Samuel 17:24

Master Moment

We don’t have to be afraid just because everyone else is afraid.

Ways of Wisdom

The Israelite army was scared of Goliath. Not one man was brave enough to face the giant. Then David came into the camp. He was not afraid! Think about what might have happened if David had been afraid too! No one would have faced Goliath!

Use the Force

Dear Lord, I am a child like David, but I know that anyone can be brave with You on their side. I praise You that I can be brave even if others are not!
