David was the youngest of Jesse’s eight sons who lived in Bethlehem. David was a sheep keeper, the lowest rank in tribal society. Nonetheless, Yahweh sent prophet Samuel to anoint the young shepherd in order that David replace king Saul who had lost God’s support. Once anointed, David was sent to Saul’s court to help the king who was facing war with Goliath and the Philistines. Goliath was a giant armed with the most advanced weapons and armor of his time. He epitomized power and worldly arrogance.

Saul’s soldiers were fearful to confront Goliath in battle. David approached Saul and volunteered to fight the giant Philistine. When he showed up for the challenge, Goliath looked at the young man with a stick holding a sling and laughed. When the Philistine made a move to attack, David swiftly took a stone from his bag, put in his sling and struck the giant’s forehead. The giant fell face down to the ground unconscious. David picked up Goliath’s sword and cut his head off. When the Philistines saw their champion dead they retreated and fled.

The story reveals that God protects and guides his chosen people against godless tyrants, whoever they might be, foreign and domestic. Yahweh always prevails regardless of the arrogance of wordily powers.

If you’re curious as to how the symbols found on the US dollar came to be, look no further than
Michael Rizzotti’s well researched book. In addition to providing the reader with the history and context, the author expands on related subjects such as the Federal Reserve and the dollar’ s evolution to becoming the reserve currency of the world. All in all, a good, well written read.
