Day Twelve : Keep it on. (Breastplate of Righteousness)


Do you know what I like about the breastplate as an item of armour.  You can put it on, and forget about it.

If you are fighting with a sword and a shield, you need to be constantly swinging away with them, and trusting in your abilities.

But eventually you will slip, and a blow will get past your defences.

Then you better hope you are wearing a breastplate. 

Because it doesn’t matter how bad a soldier you are, and how weak you are.  If you are wearing a breastplate, it will stop the sword for you. 

Righteousness is awesome like that as well.  We don’t have to be good Christians, or strong.

We just need to put it on every day.
