In a vintage Far Side cartoon, Gary Larson depicts some early settlers of the American west with their wagons circled, trying to withstand an attack from their opponents. As flaming arrows are landing all around them, one settler cries out to another, “Hey! They’re lighting their arrows!…Can they do that?”
Unfortunately, we can’t expect our enemy to go easy on us. Satan will do anything he can to try to defeat us. Therefore, we need to be strong in our faith.
“In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.”—Ephesians 6:16.
What will you do today to strengthen your faith?
