Message: Good News for Graduates (1 Samuel 17)

Everybody likes to cheer for the underdog. We root for Indiana Jones against the Nazi. In a newer movie, we root for the Avengers against Thanos. We love to applaud and cheer for the underdog to compete and to win.. We want to see them overcome tremendous obstacles and succeed. But we don’t want to face those obstacles ourselves. We don’t want to be the underdog. Today, you may feel like you are the underdog facing a lot of challenges, adjustments, and uncertainties, Life is like a big giant. You may be graduating high school and facing the giant of college. You might be graduating college and see your opposing giant as grad school. Your giant may simply be a greater responsibility in the workforce. 

The story of David and Goliath is the ultimate underdog story. As we walk through this story together, we can learn some principles from David – how he dealt with his giant – so that you learn how to deal with yours. What did David have? How could David face the giant when others couldn’t? God is bigger than any problem you will ever face. That’s the good news! Remember this as you face your giants. The battle is the Lords!
