Of Sticks and Giants

goliathHe said to David, “Am I a dog, that you come at me with sticks?” And the Philistine cursed David by his gods. (1 Samuel 17:43)

I started to read a book given to me, “David and Goliath” by Malcolm Gladwell. Great book with illuminative insights on how to overcome giants with sticks. Even from the beginning, chapter one is filled with insights –

Goliath is not always the giant he seems to be. He too has his weak spots. Use your strengths, exploit his weaknesses, have the courage to fight differently, forget the standardized methods, and most importantly- have attitude. Even giants can fall. People might laugh at your unorthodox methods. Using sticks to fight giants is unorthodox. Yet sticks overcame the giant, Goliath.

What are your Goliaths, standing tall and seemingly terrifyingly against your life? Remember, they are not always the giants that they seem to be. If used well, sticks can overcome giants.
