Let’s Talk About the Boy Who Killed a Giant

One of the most delightfully inspiring stories of all time can be found in 1st Samuel Chapter 17; the awesome account of a small shepherd boy who brought down the giant champion intimidating his people.

King Saul was afraid. The Israelites were afraid. They thought their doom was certain.

Have you ever been threatened by giant? Have you ever had to face something so much bigger and stronger than you, that you believed it was unsolvable? Do you still have to deal with a giant today?

Your giant may be a need; for a job, life partner or the fruit of the womb. It may be a weakness; a habit you cannot break that is destroying you gradually, for instance. Or it may be your circumstances; a sickness that leaves you bedridden, or even a wayward child.

Regardless of what shape it takes, a giant is always from the enemy’s camp; what it wants to do to you is not what God desires for you.

12 Interesting Things I’ve Learnt About Drinking Water

The first time I became conscious of my ridiculously poor water drinking habit was in 2005 when I was a corps member. I taught in a school and lived in the corpers’ lodge with other corps members, and every Saturday when the pure water company came by with their truck, we would go out to buy bags of water.

A few weeks after we started this, I noticed that the others bought more bags every week, while I would go weeks without needing to buy. It didn’t take long before my colleagues noticed, and, feeling self-conscious and a bit embarrassed, I decided to pay attention to my water drinking habits. What I found shocked me.
