Convo with Pastor - 1 Samuel 17:38-39

Saul clothed David with his armor;
he put a bronze helmet on his head
and clothed him with a coat of mail. 
[But] David said to Saul,
"I cannot walk with these;
for I am not used to them."
So David removed them.
1 Samuel 17:38-39
 
My favorite part of the story of David and Goliath is Saul trying to clothe David in worldly armor and David taking it off. The only armor that the man after God's own heart needed was the full armor (and provision) of God!
 
We constantly clothe ourselves with worldly armor and earthly priorities. We think it will protect us. We think the things of this world will bring us joy. We'd do well to remember the words of David: "I cannot walk with these."
 
What worldly things might you need to quit walking with?!
 
In Christ's Love,
Jack
 
(as in ... Jack in the Beanstalk ...
get it ... giant-killer!)
------------------------------
Sometimes the worldly armor is small, yet heavy. How do we let go as easily as David?
