During my quiet time last week I came across the following question. Is your family dressed for success before they walk out the door? The author wasn’t talking about wearing the perfect business attire or eye- catching outfit. Instead, she was asking if you’re making sure that your loved ones are prepared with the full armour of God.
Normally this time of year is spent in a flurry of school supplies, backpacks & new sneakers. We decide if our children will pack or buy their lunch. Will they walk, carpool or take the bus? But have you ever taken the time to make sure that your children were prepared for the spiritual battles that await them in the world beyond your home.
With that in mind, how are you doing at preparing those you love for the battles ahead? Are they wearing all six pieces?
- Helmet of Salvation
- Breastplate of Righteousness
- Sword of the Spirit
- Belt of Truth
- Shoes of Readiness & Peace
- Shield of Faith.
If not, what can you do to prepare them? These lessons aren’t just for children. They are for all of us. Why not do a study with your small group, write a sermon series, blog about it? The possibilities are endless & the outcome eternal.
