A few weeks ago, when there was trouble here, a friend told me, "remember Eph.6". Just remember that - to stand strong in the full armor of God. I laughed. I listen to memory verses in one grade, and they are studying Eph. 6, so it was not like I would be able to forget. I was in today, teaching, but my one student was taking a test, so I listened to memory verses again.
"Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the full armor of God so that you may be able to take a stand in the evil day."
Seventeen times. The eighteenth was home with chicken pox. Seventeen times.
Be strong. I guess there is something to be said for repetition!
