One of the nice things about living in Israel is that you get to see many of the places mentioned in the bible. When taking youth movements on hikes it’s customary to say stuff like “On this rock Jacob sat down to tie his laces while running from Esau” or “Saul peed behind this tree”.
We live about 20 minutes from the Valley of Elah and one time while driving through I remembered that the kids have been watching some biblical cartoons so I told #1 (about four years old at the time)
You know, this is where David fought Goliath
Was David real? He immediately asked
Yes replied both his parents.
He then mulled it over for a bit and asked “Is Bob the Builder real too?”
