Confronting the Giant by Raymond A. Foss

standing when we should
the world in the breach
confronting the giant
with our lives
much that we can teach

the lessons of David that day
defiant before that man
trusting in the Lord
to ever guard his way

courageous before the giant on the field
with stones and sling in his hand
believing God would protect him
righteous, he did not yield

rising to the challenges of our land
the focus on things that will rust
going into the world to heal
like David, taking a stand

telling the rich man, even ourselves
that the way to heaven divine
is not the amount in our barns
or on our cupboard shelves

true abundance, happiness
in this troubled world
and in the world to come
measured with love instead
