“David didn’t become King David until he faced the challenge of the giant. The difficulty created the opportunity, said Doug Wead.
Mr. Wead talked about David’s life while he was just a young shepherd and his older brothers were off at war. Even though David had talents and was a gifted musician, David’s true calling as the King of Israel was not yet evident.
What brought out David’s leadership was the challenge of the giant Goliath. David
could have stayed at home and still have been happy. But it was the difficulty of facing his giant that brought out the character and bravery of David who later became King.
Students and staff were encouraged with this great lesson from history from one of America’s great historians and authors. It was also a special treat for Doug Wead to look upon his son, Josh Wead as he led the worship service in chapel that day.
