1 Samuel 17 assorted verses
I'm doing things a little differently today. You may have noticed we saved the Old Testament reading for last, and that's because we are looking at it in close detail. And you may say, “Well, we all know the story of David and Goliath, we've heard it since we were children.” And that's true and that's good. But often in the “children's” version, we don't get all the details. And you know that old saying... “the devil is in the details.” But did you know that this phrase is an outgrowth of an even older phrase? The original phrase was “God is in the detail.” So we are going to try to find God in the details of the story, but more, we will try to find meaning for us beyond the boy vs giant story we all know.
