I have found out that belief in yourself is absolutely necessary if you want others to believe in you. If you don’t believe that you can do something, how can you expect others to? Where would David be if he hadn’t believed he could have defeated Goliath?
We all know the story – it’s one of my favorites and I feel it’s a good lesson for us all. It’s also a great example of belief in one’s self. He had faith in God as well, but so did the Israelite army. What gave David the courage to stand up and fight Goliath when others could not?
