Read 1 Samuel 17:38-39 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: Have you ever wanted to go on a ride at an amusement park but were too short to go on it?
Parent Note: Height restrictions are in place for our safety. King Saul’s equipment was way too big for David and would have made him ineffective in battle against Goliath. Because there was no armor that would fit him, David would have to go into battle with only God to protect him—that is the best armor in existence!
Pray this out loud together:
Dear God, thank you for Your protection.
I know that when You’re on my side, I will not fail.
Please help me to trust You , and not to depend on myself.
In Jesus’s name, amen.
