Yessss! Today is a good one–ready for it… today is National Underwear Day… Nice. Fun fact about underwear: the record for the most pairs of underwear worn at one time is 266. Try that at home, huh? Yeah, you’re mom may not be real happy with you. You can check this easy though–the average person owns 21 pairs of undies.
And while you’re at it, make sure you check under there… get it?
Underwear was actually created for protection–protection from cold, dirt, germs–it’s to keep you sanitary, which basically means clean and not gross. There are even records of a kind of ‘under armor’ which goes back thousands of years–undergarments they would wear under armor. Think about David and Goliath–the armor is too big for David, so he goes out to fight Goliath with better protection–God. God is our shield and protector from the evil one.
David put on the sword and tried to walk around. He tried to wear Saul’s uniform, but David was not used to all those heavy things. David said to Saul, “I can’t fight in these things. I’m not used to them.” So David took them all off…45 David said to the Philistine, “You come to me using sword, spear, and javelin. But I come to you in the name of the Lord All-Powerful, the God of the armies of Israel.
1 Samuel 17: 39&45
Dear Lord, Thank you for your protection. Help me to feel your love and power today. Amen.
