Conquering Goliath

"There are Goliaths all around us, hulking giants with evil intent to destroy. But you need not fear if you have the slingshot of truth in your hands. When they challenge you, you can hit them “between the eyes,” “Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.”

"Victory will be yours. You are a child of God. You have His power within you to sustain you. You have the right to call upon God to protect you. Do not let Goliath frighten you. Stand your ground and hold your place, and you will be triumphant." (President Hinckely from Jan 2002 Ensign)

We are talking about the Armor of God tomorrow in Primary, and I am helping a class with a class presentation. We will be acting out the story of David and Goliath. I'm hoping that our really tall Sunbeam teacher won't mind playing the part of Goliath. This is really last minute planning for me (as in I just found out that I needed to do this lesson earlier today,) but I have really enjoyed reading the story of David and Goliath, making my little props and getting this all together.

Isn't this a cute illustration of the story? When you cut it out and use brads to put it all together, David slings his arm, the stone flies through the air and Goliath falls down. I wish I had time to go have color copies made for all the children to take home, but a simple coloring page will have to do. I printed it out for my files and we will use it for FHE and maybe in a Primary talk sometime.

I love that the cutout of David comes with a swinging arm! Cute! I hope your sharing time went well. David and Goliath is a great Bible story.
