David and Goliath: The Story They Didn’t Tell Us

Here is a great post from a friend, check it out to see the entire post: http://chadholtz.wordpress.com/

This is the story you have no doubt heard many times.   But there is a catch.  You were all told that David did this heroic deed because he was a man after God’s own heart and knew that victory was on his side, were you not?  He comes onto the green board and thunders, “Who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should defy the armies of the living God?!”  Wow.  What a great, Braveheart-like moment.  David, it would seem, was wonder boy, a boy we could call a hero and dreamed to be like but wondered if we really could. Even in his flannel Jams, David was somehow out of our league.”

But that is not the whole story.  You weren’t told the whole truth behind this tale.”
