Title: The Breastplate of Righteousness – Protecting Our Hearts and Actions
Bible Verse: “Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.” – Ephesians 6:11
Hello, young friends! Today, we’re going to talk about the armor of God and how we can protect our hearts and actions with the breastplate of righteousness.
Just like a knight wears armor to protect himself in a battle, God gives us spiritual armor to protect us from the bad things in the world. One important part of this armor is the breastplate of righteousness. The breastplate covers our hearts and helps us to do the right things and make good choices.
What is righteousness? Righteousness means doing what is right in God’s eyes. It means being kind, honest, and obedient to our parents. It means choosing to follow God’s ways instead of our own selfish desires.
Just like a breastplate protects a knight’s heart, righteousness protects our hearts from being filled with bad things. When we choose to do what is right, we are protecting ourselves from things like lying, being mean to others, and disobeying our parents.
When we wear the breastplate of righteousness, we are showing that we are on God’s team and that we want to do things his way. And just like a knight needs to keep his armor on at all times in a battle, we need to always have our breastplate of righteousness on to protect our hearts and actions.
Let’s pray and ask God to help us put on the breastplate of righteousness every day and protect our hearts and actions.
Dear God, thank you for giving us the armor of God to help us in this world. Help us to always choose what is right and to protect our hearts from bad things. Help us to be righteous and follow your ways. In Jesus’ name, amen.
Remember, we can protect our hearts and actions by putting on the breastplate of righteousness and choosing to do what is right in God’s eyes. God is always with us, helping us to do what is right. Let’s always wear our spiritual armor and be strong in the Lord! Amen.
