During lunch yesterday we read this paragraph from Little Pilgrim’s Progress by Helen Taylor:
Then Mercy, turning to look behind her, and saw a lion coming after them. It began to roar as it drew near, and Great Heart made the children go behind him while he waited for the savage beast. But when the creature saw that its enemy was prepared to fight instead of running away, it crouched down upon the path and came no farther.
We then proceeded to talk about how Satan is a lion that creeps about the earth wanting to devour his prey. And it’s for this reason that we need to know about and use our Sword of the Spirit just like Great Heart. Sweet Cheeks jumped up from the table, ran into the living room, and ran back into the kitchen with her Bible, swinging it to and fro.
“Mama! I’m using my Sword of the Spirit!”
And, yes…she was still in her pajamas at lunch time. It was one of those days.
But it was a good day. 🙂
Have a great Friday!!
