A Helpful Thought

In the Lesson-Sermon of May 20, we read of David going forth to battle with Goliath.

What a wonderful lesson this is to us. Should we not examine ourselves daily, and see whether we have on an armor of self-righteousness and self-justification? or whether we are armored in the name of the Lord?

Our friends would often load us down with many so-called protections as Saul did David when he was preparing to meet Goliath. But let us lay aside all material things, and say with David, "I have not proved them."

When we see this giant error and its army coming out to try us, let us not be afraid, but with the courage of David, run toward it and, in the name of the "God of the armies of Israel," overcome it at once.
