Then for the intentional part, talk about how David was just a regular teen, but he made the choice to know and walk with God. David knew he was able to trust God, because he spent time getting to know God. So, when faced with the giant Goliath, he trusted God . . . even when faced with a huge, scary, angry giant. The result was amazing!
Just as it does not seem likely we will be able to cut a hole in a piece of paper which is large enough for us to fit our whole bodies through, it did not seem likely a teen boy would be able to face and defeat a seasoned soldier; especially one who was an actual giant. But, with the right cuts we are able to walk through a sheet of paper and more importantly, when we know, walk with and trust God, He will do amazing things in our lives, too!
Try this fun activity with your grandchildren and "amaze" them; more importantly, challenge them to see how God "amazes" them when they know, walk with and trust Him! Consider keeping a journal of the ways you all see God do amazing things in your lives, because along with learning to watch for the "amazing", we need to remember the "amazing" as well.
