Three thousand years ago on a battlefield in ancient Palestine, a shepherd boy felled a mighty warrior with nothing more than a stone and a sling, and ever since then the names of David and Goliath have stood for battles between underdogs and giants. David’s victory was improbable and miraculous. He shouldn’t have won.
There is so much to learn from history, including Biblical history. We should not be after fades and trends. The biggest and best wisdom comes from history!
Gladwell presents good analysis of the recording of David meeting Goliath. He lifts the covers on the details in the text that most of us miss.
David and His life contain truth meant to lead and guide us even today. We do well to listen and learn.
