Bible Story: David and Saul’s Armor | 1 Samuel 17
Every person on earth is unique. We have distinct DNA, personalities, experiences, and relationships that make us different from each other. This makes us uniquely wired and wonderfully made. Because we are uniquely made in God’s image, it’s important for kids to discover more about what that means for them — how they can use their unique traits, gifts, and talents to serve and bring glory to God.
We kick off the month in 1 Samuel 17 and rediscover the familiar story of David and Goliath. David was the newly anointed king of Israel. He saw that Goliath was bullying God’s people, and he knew that God would help him defeat the giant. Instead of wearing the typical armor, he decided to use what God gave him through his experience as a shepherd. With a rock and a sling, he knocked Goliath to the ground and defeated the Philistines.
God made you to be you. God uniquely made each and every one of us. On top of that, God’s given us unique experiences that we can use to help others. Our unique story can impact the world for God!
