Trash Talk versus Truth Talk

Do you know the most famous "trash talker" in Scripture? This 1-minute devotion shares his story and compares trash talk to truth talk. #BibleLoveNotes #Bible

Trashtalk and smacktalk are relatively new terms, but the practice has been around a long time. Goliath, for example (1 Samuel 17).

He trash-talked David this way:

“Am I a dog,” he roared at David, “that you come at me with a stick?” And he cursed David by the names of his gods. “Come over here, and I’ll give your flesh to the birds and wild animals!” Goliath yelled.” 1 Samuel 17:41-44

But Goliath was more than trash talk.

He was the nine-foot champion of the Philistines whose armor weighed more than David (17:4-7). 

He'd taunted Israel eighty times before meeting David (17:16).

However, David didn't need trash talk because he had TRUTH TALK: "I come against you in the name of the LORD Almighty" (17:45)

What battle are you fighting today? What giant taunts you?
You don’t need to handle it with your own power, intellect or weapons.

And you don’t need to trashtalk because you can Truth Talk.

Let God fight for you and bring down your Goliaths.
