I can be brave because God is with me

Posted by Central Preschool

A young shepherd named David is brave and faces Goliath, when no one else will, because he knows God is with him. With just a sling and a stone, David shows us that God can help us be brave enough to stand up to anything— even a cruel giant that wants to kill us while a fearful king and his army stand by and watch.
