There was the problem of wild animals who wanted to kill his family’s sheep. So, David killed a lion and a bear. Then there was the problem of King Saul, whose fits of rage sometimes resulted in spears being hurled at David while he played the harp.

Courage is not the absence of fear; rather, it is the…
