1 Samuel 17:40 He took his staff in his hand, picked out five smooth stones from the stream, placed them in the pouch of his shepherds bag, took his sling in hand, and approached the Philistine.

So often we think the stories in the Bible, like Davis slaying Goliath, are for children. There is much or every adult to learn from all that is in the Bible. Goliath was a big problem for the Israelites. David saw the problem and looked to God. He did not try to do as others by wearing armor. He stayed as he was accustomed to working. It only took one small stone to rid the Israelites if the big problem. One small stone handled in faith in God. We have Goliath-like problems in our walk. When we look at the problems do we just see how big they are or do we see them as an opportunity to let God solve them through us. Our question is will we allow our goliaths o torment us or will we look to God, knowing He equips us for all we face?
