So poor was okay. I was happy preaching, writing, and doing ministry work among the poor. I really thought that to love the poor, I had to become poor. I also used to think that to be close to God, I had to be poor too.

Just read 1 Samuel 17 to get the real deal. Mine is a Picasso version. Is it true that you were in the Bible? We met him yesterday! So can you tell us a Bible story? Pretty please? He sat down and gathered the children. An entire afternoon gone, he thought. But he always loved sharing his days on earth. But yes, I was right there in the most famous fight in the Bible. You mean the one between David and…? I saw it all. The sling shot, the javelin, the sword and the blood splattering on the desert sand.
The kids sat around him in a tight circle. They knew they were in for a real treat. I remember how thrilled Mama was when she heard my job title. She was so excited, she threw a little party in our town. She told all my relatives of my good fortune. The next day, everyone in our town came to borrow money. I also got to see all the beautiful girls in the palace. One of them eventually became my wife. We had four boys who all looked just like me. I pitied them. A maid who just happens to be a guy.
Scrub, scrub, scrub. But because of the Philistine problem, the King used his armor a lot during those years. The Philistines were our worst enemy. I remember how I used to curse them. Those morons pardon my French thought they could just swoop down on us, take our land, steal our women and make us slaves forever.
What were these guys thinking? I wondered if they had no mothers. Well, one fateful day, these motherless creatures had a new leader.
It was the big bad boy himself, Mr. Goliath, and boy, oh boy, was the guy a walking freak show. He was a beast! He was Godzilla in disguise. Because his mere shadow covered two battalions. Goliath was just plain awesome. And you should have heard him speak. Two Spectacular Shows a Day This is what happened. Imagine this scene with me. Two armies facing each other. The Israelites on one hill; the Philistines on the other. The tension hanging in the air is exceedingly heavy.
All of a sudden, The Mountain, Godzilla, King Kong or whatever you want to call that beast, marches forward from the ranks of the Philistines. Choose one man from among you. If he kills me, all of us shall serve you. But if I kill him, you shall serve us! You have life insurance, right? He gave this for 40 days straight. And he gave it twice a day. Like there was a matinee and a gala show. That was how popular it was. In fact, people lined up and watched it over and over again.
He was that good. The Reward So what did my Boss do? King Saul proclaimed a bounty for the head of Goliath. It was a genius plan. I was in the room when he announced it. And I shall exempt him and his family from paying taxes for his entire lifetime. Man, you could hear a pin drop. It was clear that no one in the room was interested. I elbowed my cousin, Goob, who was right beside me.
But it had the opposite effect. Now, everyone knew that the situation was desperate. His name was David. Just to brag a bit, David was my boyhood chum. We actually played together as kids. Actually, I just played with him once. Some years back, my family visited his town. But I remembered his — the name his friends called him. It was Pebble. Of course, David was bigger than a pebble. But not that much. Most of his brothers were in the army, wearing brass helmets, heavy breastplates and long spears.
David was a scrawny shepherd who walked into the scene carrying a basket. A basket, for crying out loud!
