How God Helped a Shepherd Boy
I Samuel 17:34-37
father had a flock of fine sheep. At night he kept them locked up in a
sheepfold. In the daytime he let them wander about through the green
fields and pasture lands. Wild animals lived in the woods near by. So
David's father sent a man along to watch the sheep and keep the wild
animals from hurting them.
David liked to help tend the sheep. As he grew older, sometimes his father
would let him care for them all by himself. He was a brave boy. He
believed God would make him a good shepherd.
in the fields day after day, little David grew healthy and strong. His
cheeks grew rosy and his eyes grew sparkling bright, like the clear waters
of the brook where the sheep went to drink. He learned how to use the
shepherd's staff as well as a slingshot.
