5 Smooth Stones

David picked up 5 stones before he hit the battlefield against Goliath.  Books, poems, and suggestions have floated around pondering why he picked up 5 when there was only one giant.  All theories aside, he was ready.

He was ready in case there were more challenges.  He spent most of his very young life getting ready for the moment.  He didn’t know when or even if it was coming, but he was ready.

We all need to prepare for what is ahead.  The challenges that are before us will have a few Goliaths.  We know David went on and was, “a man after God’s own heart” (1Samuel 13:14), but he had a life full of obstacles to overcome.  Seek God’s guidance, surround yourself with real friends, and pick up some rocks.
