As I sat there watching my husband whack, peel and break open a coconut I got to thinking about God and how He put so much into protecting the heart of the coconut.  Therefore that got me thinking of how He protects us and how He wants us to partner with Him in this effort.

“Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.” Colossians 3:12

How much more God has clothed us.  He calls these bodies we are in “the temple of the Holy Spirit” – wow!  That is something special for sure.  Just like a coconut we are housing an important part too – the heart which is the well-spring of what we have been putting inside.  Think about how God has protected you through times and seasons.  <Selah> Like how our great Creator clothes a coconut, He gives us His Word to help us guard our hearts and minds.

As we teach our little loveys the Word of God, it is important to instill in them just how holy it is and how our Lord wants us to learn to protect our hearts and equip our minds with its content.  We can remind them just how perfectly God has woven them together to house the most important of things – the Spirit of the living God.

"I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, My soul shall be joyful in my God; For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness," Isaiah 61:10

Thank You, God our Creator!
