Watch David Stand Up to Goliath: “Stones, Slings, and Giant Things” Is Here!

In “Stones, Slings, and Giant Things,” the next story in the Bible App for Kids, David faces off against the giant Goliath! Based on 1 Samuel 16–17, kids will see God lead Samuel — the prophet from our story “A Voice in the Night” — to anoint the next king of Israel. God chooses the shepherd boy David, even though all of David’s brothers are bigger, stronger, and more qualified. That’s because most of us judge people based on what they look like — but God sees what’s inside a person’s heart.

Later, when David goes to visit his brothers at their battle against the Philistine army, it makes him angry to hear the rude things the Philistine champion Goliath is saying about God. Because David trusts in God, he goes to fight the giant Goliath with just five smooth stones and his trusty sling. With God’s help, David beats Goliath and becomes a hero to all of Israel!
