God had prepared David to fight Goliath in both physical ability and faith. He was used to killing lions and bears who attacked his sheep, and he deeply trusted in God's protection. Both those things were enough to give him the confidence he needed to deal with Goliath!
David had a strong friendship with King Saul's son Jonathan, who played a key part in saving David from his father's wrath and determination to kill David. A good opportunity to talk about friends and what they mean to us.
David wrote about half of the Psalms in the bible. They are honest songs and prayers that have been helpful to countless millions of Christians since he wrote them about 3000 years ago. We take a look at verses from Psalms 19, 23 and 139 in this session.
