A LESSON from THE BIBLE In the desert, David and the Israelite army faced the giant Goliath. “We are lost” said the soldiers, “he’s so big we can never beat him” But David looked at Goliath and said “NO, he’s so big I can’t miss”, as he fired a stone from his slingshot which killed the giant instantly. Quotation.... “We are not asked whether we will accept life’s problems That is Not the question We must take them The only question is how.”  (after Henry Ward Beecher)
