David was just trying to help, but his own brother questioned his motives and called him prideful and naughty. King Saul told him he couldn’t do it. The giant made fun of him.
But that didn’t stop David.
He didn’t go cry in the corner because someone called him names or told him he couldn’t do it. Nope. He just went on in the name of the Lord.
APPLICATION: When you serve Jesus, not everyone is going to like you. That’s a hard one for me to swallow, but it’s true. Pleasing man and pleasing God doesn’t always go hand in hand. If people question your motives, tell you that you can’t do it, or even mock you, just hold your head up and go on for Jesus.
You won’t regret it.
And you might just slay a giant in the process.
