Anyone got a Slingshot?

David & Goliath - Mel Peterson - The Naked BloggerAnyone got a slingshot?  Remember that cool gadget we played with as kids, that could take out a neighbor's window, inflict a nasty sting in the rear, and set our enemies running for the hills just at the mere sight of it in our hands?  That tiny little thing could fling some major damage.

It's been a challenging year... and it's got me thinking of an Old Testament story of David and Goliath... you may have read it as a kid.  The giant Goliath taunted the Israelites daily with threats and insults.  Young David (future King of Israel) offered to fight Goliath on behalf of his people.  Dressed in a simple tunic, carrying his shepherd's staff, along with his slingshot and a pouch full of stones, David fired one rock from his sling at the giant and took out Goliath in one fell swoop.

Oh to be young and fearless again... and it goes without saying... BIG things come in small packages.
