Our normal practice each morning is that I read the daily devotional selected for the day from a devotional booklet, and then I read the accompanying scripture verses that go along with the story. Did I mention that I read this out loud to my husband and anyone else who happens to be within earshot? Yep, that is what we do, weekdays and weekends. Normally, I just read without much expression, trying not to be too loud in case someone is still sleeping in the house. But today, I could not resist reading this whole passage rather loudly, using my best Deep, Gravelly, Ferocious giant voice for Goliath, and my equally STRONG, CONFIDENT and BRAVE voice for David.
Please read along with me:
The first scene is the young shepherd boy David convincing King Saul that he is able to go and fight this Philistine...see verses 31-39 I particularly like verses 36-37, where David says to King Saul:

|David hurried and ran toward the army to meet|
