Medieval Knight in Armor

The world can sometimes seem an awfully scary place to live in. Above and beyond all that humanity seems to be doing to screw up the world, each person must learn how to live true to themselves and the Infinite One when there are many things vying for our attention and faith.

Although the symbol of armor might seem outmoded today, it still makes sense in that our faith should be something that protects us from the destructive messages of the world. It is comforting to know that we can resist the things that might destroy us (or, at the very least, vie for our attention) so that God can hold a new importance in our lives.

O God, make me strong—not with my own strength, but yours. Place the armor of God around me, that I might be protected from the messages that do me harm. Amen.
