This morning our pastor spoke from I Samuel 17, the story of David and Goliath. Tonight, our Life Group discussed his notes and answered some discussion questions, one of which was “How do you speak to your giants?”
In our discussion a thought came to me. It’s possible, when I get really honest with myself and God, that I’m my own giant. My willingness to be content in fear may be my giant. My need to control may be my giant. My lack of grace to see people how God sees them may be my giant. In pondering how to speak to my giant, it very well could be I have to answer, “How do I speak to myself?”
What if my fear is my Goliath?
What if my pride is my Goliath?
What if my self righteousness is my Goliath?
What if the flesh and blood I’ve made my giant is only a distraction from the real one?
What if I’m Goliath?
