Stand firm and you will win life.
Luke 21:19 NIV

Abraham Lincoln said, “Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand.” 
Shammah was one of David’s mighty men. After his fellow Israelites fled from a Philistine troop, Shammah stood alone and protected a bean patch. He is credited with defeating the Philistine soldiers by himself. The beans were not precious, however they were pivotal. First the beans, then the farm, then the family. He put a stop to their advance in the early stages. 
Today, remember: The tallest oak in the forest was once a little nut that held its ground.
