David & Goliath
Then Saul dressed David in
 his own tunic. He put a coat
 of armor on him and a
 bronze helmet on his head.
 David fastened on his sword
 over the tunic and tried
 walking around, because he
 was not used to them.


        1 Samuel 17:38-40 (NIV)
"I cannot go in these," he said
  to Saul, "because I am not
  used to them." So he took
  them off. Then he took his staff
  in his hand, chose five smooth
  stones from the stream, put
  them in the pouch of his
  shepherd's bag and, with his
  sling in his hand, approached
  the Philistine.
          1 Samuel 17:38-40 (NIV)
He has showed you, O
 man, what is good. And
 what does the Lord
 require of you? To act
 justly and to love mercy
 and to walk humbly with
               Micah 6:8 (NIV)
Stop doing wrong, learn to
 do right! Seek justice,
 encourage the oppressed.
 Defend the cause of the
 fatherless, plead the case
 of the widow.

Dr. Martin Luther King
Testament of Hope
 "In the final analysis, means
  and ends must cohere
  because the end is
  preexistent in the means,
  and ultimately destructive
  means cannot bring about
  constructive ends."
 Adam Taylor
 Mobilizing Hope

“Christians can and will
 disagree on the best policies,
 programs and routes to
 achieve kingdomlike ends.
 However, we should be in
 agreement about the ends we
 seek to achieve. We must
 embrace Jesus' ends,
       Adam Taylor
        Mobilizing Hope
which prioritize the needs of
 the least, the last and the
 lost. By this standard, the
 health of our politics and our
 economy [churches] should
 be measured around how the
 weak, the vulnerable and the
 marginalized are faring.”
