Slaying the Giant and Beating the Odds

The story of David and Goliath is one of my son’s favorites. To him, David is the epitome of bravery,  a young shepherd boy who took down the undefeated giant Goliath with just a handful of stones and a sling.

What I love most about this story is the fact that David was the least likely candidate to defeat Goliath, yet he did it anyway! Despite David’s youth and small stature, he showed true courage and did not let the odds discourage him from attempting the challenge.

Sometimes when we are working towards a goal or dream, there may be moments when you think “but how could I possibly compete?”

When it comes to tackling a challenging goal, it is important not to negatively compare ourselves with others. If we look down on ourselves in comparison to someone else, we lose sight of our own strengths and uniqueness.

Keep your eyes fixed on that goal! Even if the odds are stacked against you, fight back and slay your giant!
