What would I want my kids to learn from David and Goliath?
NOT ”Be like David and slay your giants”
• We can be confident that God will be faithful to us today because He has been in the past
• God uses the humble
• When we think of David and Goliath we should think of Jesus
What would I tell my kids and you about David and Goliath?
• God is faithful
• God uses the humble
• David points to a better king, a better conqueror, a better savior – our King Jesus
