Ready for Battle
Connor and I had a funny time in the church parking lot this morning. He and Justin were allowed to use their own money yesterday to buy a pirate hat and sword. Connor wanted to bring his sword to church today. I let him take it in the car, with the condition that it stay there while we were inside. Then I remembered Ephesians 6, which talks about the whole armor of God. We had a good teaching time standing outside the car, him holding his sword and hat, me holding my Bible and reading out of Ephesians 6. He had a good time pretending to put on his belt of truth, his breastplate of righteousness, the shield of faith, helmet of salvation, and finally, the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. I tell you, I was feeling a little underdressed without a sword and a trifold hat.
