Proper 7/Ordinary 12 2015 – 1 Samuel 17:4

Monday, June 15, 2015

Our lectionary selections this week include the familiar David and Goliath battle as well as Jesus calming the stormy water: 1 Samuel 17:(1a, 4-11, 19-23), 32-49 and Psalm 9:9-20 or 1 Samuel 17:57-18:5, 18:10-16 and Psalm 133, Job 38:1-11 and Psalm 107:1-3, 23-32, 2 Corinthians 6:1-13, and Mark 4:35-41.

1 Samuel 17:4And there came out from the camp of the Philistines a champion named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span.

As I reflected on this passage, I began to think about the goliath’s in our own lives.  Then I read this phrase on a wooden block my wife keeps in a prominent location in our home: “Be kind for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.”

Gentle God, help us to remember that everyone is aching in some way.  Amen.
