The belt did not typically look like much but it played a significant role in securing the breastplate and holding the warrior’s armor in place.
Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. … Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, – Ephesians 10:11&14
The Bible, the absolute Truth, may not look much different than any other book on your shelf but it plays a significant role in securing a heart for our Savior and Lord, and a proper perspective in this world.
Tips for buckling the belt of Truth in your home:
- Discuss Sunday’s sermon, and scripture reference, around the dinner table.
- Read a Proverb a day with your son for a month.
- Check out Devotions for Dads for a topic and scripture specific discussion aid.
