There is always another Giant

One of David's finest hours was the slaying of Goliath of Gath. A huge giant killed with God's help by a sling and pebble.

But Goliath was not the only giant faced by God's people. Reading in 1 Chronicles 20 v 4 - 8 we can add the names: Saph, Lahmi (Goliaths brother) & a huge giant with extra fingers and toes.

So we can add the names of
Sibbecai from Hushah, Elhanan son of Jair & Jonathan, the son of David's brother Shimea, to the list of famous giant killers.

Following Jesus is not for the faint hearted there is always another giant to be faced and conquered.

It is interesting to note that this chapter starts with the recount of 2 Samuel 11 when David took his eye off the ball and fell to a completely different type of giant - lust.

There are all sorts of giants we have to face only 2 things are certain there will always be another one to face despite victories and they all can be beaten with God's help not our own strength.
