What should I wear today?

Today me and my children went school shopping in preparation for school starting next week. As we were at the store, my children rejected many items because they weren't the right style or the right name or the right look. As we spent time finding just the right clothing, I wondered to myself, have I made sure that my children have the proper spiritual attire when they go to school? Consider one of my favorite passages in the Bible:

"So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these." Matthew 6:28-29

In order to be protected from the evil in this world, our children need to be fully equipped with the Armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-18). It is more important to teach our children about the belt of truth rather than one made of cotton which will rot away. We should be teaching about the breastplate of righteousness guarding our chest rather than the name of some designer who we don't even know! It should be the gospel of peace covering our feet not the latest canvas sneakers.

Start with me in teaching your children TODAY about the most important garment of all! I found this article that gives a great explanation of the Armor of God. I plan to use it as a study guide in teaching my children this important truth!

May the blessings of God rain down upon you this week.
