The biblical story of David and Goliath is probably the most well-known underdog story in the world.
Goliath is a giant warrior who battles a much-smaller shepherd boy, David. David shoots him with a stone and a sling right between the eyes, Goliath topples over, and David kills him.
David and Goliath is "a metaphor for improbable victories," Gladwell explained during a Ted Talk in September. "Why do we call David an underdog? Well, we call him an underdog because he's a kid, a little kid, and Goliath is this big, strong giant. We also call him an underdog because Goliath is an experienced warrior, and David is just a shepherd. But most importantly, we call him an underdog because Goliath is outfitted with all of this modern weaponry, this glittering coat of armor and a sword and a javelin and a spear, and all David has is this sling."
The first mistake history has made when retelling the tale of David and Goliath is to assume that David was a helpless boy who only had a wimpy slingshot to protect himself, Gladwell said.
That's because there were three types of warriors in ancient times: people who fought with slings and archery (David), foot soldiers who were good at up-close combat with swords (Goliath), and people on horseback.
Goliath was a foot soldier; David was a slinger. When put this way, and you note that Goliath and David were fighting from somewhat of a distance, it makes David's weapon choice seem smart. He's good at attacking with accuracy from afar.
It also makes you understand why Goliath was in trouble the moment David whipped out his sling. If David never got close to him, how could he attack and defeat him?
"Goliath is a sitting duck. He doesn't have a chance," Gladwell concludes.

this is Your World Discovered from E P N with a study of human behavior. This is based on the book written by Professor David Ewen of Forest Academy and titled “Discerning Evil.” This book released in August of two thousand fifteen can be found on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
David Ewen gives great appreciation to his pastors at the Resurrection Center in Springfield, Massachusetts for teaching the leadership skills needed for discernment.
We will learn about discerning evil to protect ourselves from deception, manipulation, or the result of selfishness. We can protect ourselves from others using the Holy Spirit to guide us. Scriptures will be shared to show how this works. Also discussed will be the behaviors of hypocrisy and condemnation. People respond against us through jealousy, fear, or intimidation even if it is not warranted. We’ll talk about how to discern those behaviors too.
