We would rather not be in a battle, would we? And yet it is unavoidable. We can’t get out of it. We are in a battle between the kingdom of God and the kingdom of darkness.
Because we are engaged in this battle, we have to learn how to fight. Paul said in 2 Corinthians 6:4-10, “In all things approving ourselves… by the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left.”
We have to learn to fight with both hands, on the offensive and the defensive, guarding on all sides. We need to hold the shield of faith with one hand and the sword of the Spirit (the Word of God) with the other.
Teach your children how to fight with both hands. Raise children who will stand in the fight instead of being knocked down by the enemy.
