When the Philistine looked and saw David, he despised him because he was just a youth, healthy and handsome. He said to David, “Am I a dog that you come against me with sticks?” Then he cursed David by his gods. “Come here,” the Philistine called to David, “and I’ll give your flesh to the birds of the sky and the wild beasts!” 1 Samuel 17:42-44 HCSB
As a young boy I was sort of the nerd in the crowd and others would make fun of me and call me names. I have observed others being ridiculed and called names as a way of being taunted. God loves everyone, even the nerds, handicapped, and those who are a little different. He wants to protect those who may not be a part of the crowd.
When David came out to fight Goliath, I can just image how Goliath must have laughed, taunted, and called David names. He even cursed David and told him that he would give his flesh to the birds of the sky and to wild beasts.
Challenge: Know that even if others make fun of you, as a Christian, God cares about you and what you are going through. He is on your side and will give you the strength needed to face the difficulties the world presents.
