I read an interesting perspective the other day on the fight between David and Goliath. Both sides sent out their champions David, with no armor and no sword, just a stone slinger. Goliath had heavy armor of the day, with shield and sword. Goliath was the heavy favorite. It was said that David had killed both lions and bears with his sling. I never think about there being bears in the Middle East, preying upon sheep. It seems that ‘slingers’ were a part of every army of the day. The new account puts David as the favorite and that Goliath had no more chance against an experienced slinger than a swordsman had against a man with a rifle. Curious!
Have a great day,
