The Right Protection

Walking, jogging and running are popular ways to get exercise. But if we want to walk, jog or run, we need to have the right kind of shoes to protect our feet. These shoes need to be comfortable and support the weight of our body. If we have the right kind of shoes, we can walk, jog or run faster and farther.
In our Bible verses today, Paul talks about another kind of protection. Verse 13 calls this protection, “God’s full armor.” We need to wear this kind of protection to help us stand strong against the devil. This armor is made up of the belt of truth, the protection of right living, the Good News of peace, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation and the sword of God’s teaching.
In Hebrews 12:1b, we read, “So we, too, should run the race that is before us and never quit.” These words remind us that we need to follow God every day of our lives and never give up.
Be sure to wear the right kind of protection today as you serve and honor God.
