You've Got Giants and They're Bringing Their Friends
Have you ever played the carnival/amusement park game called, "Whack-a-Mole"? Armed with a soft mallet club one attempts to "whack" furry mechanical moles as they pop up from their cubby and show their little rodent face. Up one springs! Whack. And another and another. Whack! Whack! And another and another and another and anot....okay, you get the point.
Here's the thing: the Giants* we face are a lot like those whackable moles. We see the one in front of us. Perhaps view another w/our peripherary vision. But like those furry rodents, there are countless other relatives of said giant which we'll need to face down and stand up against.
A young teenage boy named David did just that: faced one giant only to stand against its relatives a few years later in life. You're going to be encouraged as you learn of God's faithfulness in preparing us both to will and to do all that is required when gazing at a Goliath.
