With the new school year under way I wanted to share with you a fun, simple and meaningful way to prepare your children for school each morning. Each morning before school, or when your child needs encouragement, take a few minutes to read through Ephesians 6:13-17 and act out “putting on the armor of God” as you read! Here are the verses below:
Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
