You Are What You Eat

“You are what you eat” the old saying goes.  If that is true, I am a Big Mac, Dairy Queen Chocolate Malt, lemon pie man of Chick-fil-A Chicken sandwiches.  I wish it were better but I would be lying.  

Eagles are finicky eaters.  Some birds eat worms, berries, and insects.  Other birds eat carcasses but the eagle does not rely on what he finds.  He finds what he wants to eat.  

Standing on the Word of God

When Paul used the analogy of the Roman soldier to the believers in how that should cloth themselves in God, he stressed the importance of armoring our feet with the 'gospel of peace.'

"and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace." Ephesi- ans 6:10-17 NIV

The shoes or sandals of Roman soldiers would have been strategically prepared for optimum warfare. In order to have better footing in battle, they would place nails or spikes in the bottom of their shoes. The common day sports cleat would have nothing on these ancient armor practices.
