When you were a kid, did you ever hear your mom or grandma or some other motherly figure in your life tell you not to leave the house without a hat in the winter?
And do you remember rolling your eyes 🙄? Because it might mess up your carefully coiffed hair, or you’d look way less cool on that skateboard or bike, or it might get in the way of making that snowman. Or any other reason why you didn’t want to wear it, right?!
The thing is, they knew protecting your head was important. To help you stay warm, or protect you if you fell, or protect your ability to keep your eye on the ball (ok I made that one up).
The same is true with the helmet of salvation as we put on the armor of God. In Roman times, this was the last part of armor that a soldier put on: because if his head was wounded, he couldn’t think.
For us it means protecting our ability to walk with the mind of Christ and be under God’s control in building our businesses. And that means we are able to show up in our business with intention and clarity, and pursue this all with discipline (the 3rd of our 4 Keys).
Most importantly, that helmet seals in our hope that, no matter what happens, we have His salvation! Even the fiery darts of the enemy can’t stop that!
Let me help you put on the next piece of armor today – the helmet of salvation! Enjoy today’s episode and check out all the resources in the links below!
