David's Daily Devotion for February 12

February 12, 2024 - Good Morning! It's Monday, February 12.

Did you watch the Super Bowl last night? Hope your team won, or at least that you enjoyed a few commercials. I thought Reba McEntire did a great job on the National Anthem. She sang it in under 90 seconds - always a good sign.

Sportswriters will write a lot about The Big Game, and I'm sure that some of them will say "It was a war out there!" Comparing football to war is a common metaphor. Coaches are called "generals," players are "warriors," in a "Battle on the Gridiron!" Sometimes I wonder what real soldiers think of this metaphor, men and women who have actually been in combat.

Well, I wouldn't know. I've never been in a war, and I never played football. But I know this. The Bible tells us that Christians are in a battle, a real war. We read about it in Ephesians 6 - "We fight not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, the authorities, the powers of this dark world." Spiritual warfare... it's not a metaphor. Put on your armor today!

Meet you back here tomorrow,
Bro. David
