Look Out Giant, Here I Come

“Say, Hard rock. Did you hear about the shepherd boy, David and that big Philistine giant? I hear it is going to be a real big fight.”

“I’ll tell you, Slick, David is so young and small, and he’ll surely be killed.”

“I don’t know,” said Slick. “He told the king he could kill that giant. Says he fights bears and lions all the time when he’s watching his father’s sheep. I don’t think a lion or a bear would be hard to kill. That giant, that’s another thing, don’t you think?”

“Yeah, I wouldn’t want to fight him. He makes the bears and lions look like dogs and cats next to him. I’m just a stone and even I know that much.”

“Yeah, you’re right,” said Slick.

“Look, here comes David. Why, he doesn’t have on any armor. What’s with him? Doesn’t he know he needs armor to fight that giant? He doesn’t even have a sword.”

“I don’t know,” said Hard Rock. “Even though I am just a stone, I’d have on

everything I could find. One hit by that giant and it would be over.”

“You know it,” said Slick.

“Does he even have a big stick?” Hard Rock asked.

“Don’t see one. This doesn’t look good.”

“No, it doesn’t,” said Hard Rock.

“What is that he is picking up?”

“I don’t know,” Hard Rock said. “Looks like stones like…!”

“Surely he’s not…OH, NO!”

“What’s happening, Slick?”

“He’s got me! PUT ME DOWN! Hard Rock, where are you?”

“He’s got me, too. What’s he doing?”

“I don’t know,” said Slick stone. “I don’t like this at all. Where is he putting us?”

“It’s so dark in here. Where are we?” Hard Rock asked.

“Feels soft, maybe like a pouch.”

“I don’t know why he picked us up. Hey, there are other stones in here with us.”

“SHH! Be quiet, Hard Rock. Who’s that talking with David?”

Hard Rock said, “I don’t know, but he sounds awfully big and awfully mad. Says he’s going to throw David to the wild animals when he kills him.”

“You know,” said Slick. “If we’re in his pouch we’ll be fed to the wild animals, too.”

“They will spit us out.” Hard rock bounced a little in the pouch trying to get a better

view of things. “We don’t taste good and besides they can’t eat us. Animals don’t eat stones. We’;re too hard to chew. They would break all their teeth on us.”

“Listen,” said Slick. “David told that mean old giant he was going to cut off his head and take it back to King Saul and then throw the rest of him to the wild animals. David sounds pretty sure of himself, don’t you think?”

“A little too sure, if you ask Me.” said Hard Rock.

“OH, NO! Hard Rock he’s got me. What’s he doing? I think he put me in his sling. OH, NO! I’m getting sick. I’m going round and round.”

“Hold on Slick, I’m trying to get out of this pouch to help you.”

“Hard Rock, I’m flying through the air. I’m headed straight for the giant’s face. HELP ME! Please, His eyes look like they are on fire. OH, NO! I can’t lookl. “CRACK.”

“Slick, what happened? Are you all right?”

“I’m falling. I think I hit the giant’s face. I closed my eyes when David threw me. What’s David doing now, Hard Rack?”

“He’s getting the giant’s sword out of his hand. I think when David threw you, you’re hard head must have killed that big mean giant. Hey, He’s going to cut off that giant’s head to take back to King Saul.”

“Well, what do you know? There really is a God. He really did help David kill that mean old giant. It had to be God, because David was too small to do that on his own.”

“You got that, Hard Rock. God made David a real hero.”

“I’ll tell you right now Slick; I don’t think I want to go on any nore giant killing adventures. This has been entirely too much excitement for me. I just like lying around doing nothing.”

“You know, Hard rock, I’ve learned a lesson today. I didn’t have a lot of confidence in David when this all started, but after seeing what faith David had in God, it has made me know that we could all do the same kinds of things if we had that same faith. I was scarred to death when David threw me at that giant’s face, but David didn’t bat an eye. He knew all along he was going to win.”

“I guess you’re right Slick. If that little young shepherd boy can kill a giant, we all can kill giants. We just have to have faith.”



  1. You have some interesting thoughts here. We all need faith to help us through our times of trial. And yet, it’s the times of trial that cause our faith to grow.

    • You are so right. We have to praise God for the good and the bad times. I know that I have had to lean on my faith to carry my through and God has not let me down. He has lifted me up and strengthened me even more and given me more direction in my life. Thanks for your comment. May God Richly Bless You this year 2011. Dian

    • Thank you so much for your insight. May you have a blessed day. Dian
