David and Goliath
Yesterday we discussed this famous story highlighted in the Old Testament book of 1 Samuel 17
at our Home Group and maybe because it was well known a good discussion was had by all. One key fact that I had not thought about when preparing for it was “how old was David when he killed Goliath”. Sadly we did not have the internet available during the meeting otherwise we would have been able to look this up 17 seems to be a popular answer as shown here
I think in our general discussion we probably had him a little younger. In my minds eye I saw him around 15. But still he showed all the courage that no one else had. I had hoped that everyone else would reach the same conclusion that I had come to when I had prepared for the meeting and this was the case. - Being a teenager Saul’s armour did not fit (too big) so he did not use it but instead he was equipped with Gods armour, as listed so well by Paul in Ephesians 6
and trusted God to help him completely in getting rid of Goliath
