Theme: The conqueror’s Mentality

Text: 1 Samuel 17

David asked the men standing near him, “What will be done for the man who kills this Philistine and removes this disgrace from Israel? Who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should defy the armies of the living God?” They repeated to him what they had been saying and told him, “This is what will be done for the man who kills him.” (V26-27)


Never deceive yourself that you know it all. Asking questions that can help you solve the problem does not make you weak. It proves that you are wise.

Many a time, we tend to let our ego deprive us of the opportunity of benefitting from the wisdom of others. With the sole aim of gaining the glory for ourselves, we fail to make enquiries to get information that may help us solve the problem. David, like Joshua, identified a problem and thought of a solution (V26-27). The problem was that Goliath was defiling the armies of the living God. He then takes that initiative to make enquiries about why the problem has been in existence and what measures have already been taken.

The conqueror must be willing to learn from other people. These people may not be as educated as we are or as smart as we may perceive of them, but they can provide us with the necessary information we need. However, let us be careful of the information that we get. We will discuss more of that on Monday God willing.
