A long time ago and far away, I learned to appreciate game socks. We would practice football in old stiff socks that had been washed in strong detergent and bleach at least a hundred times, but come game day our equipment manager would bring out the “game socks.” They were soft and flexible and when you would put them on you felt like you could conquer the world.
I bet each of you have an item of clothing in your closet that gives you a special feeling. It might be a lucky golf shirt, an old jersey, or that perfect black dress that fits just right.
Laugh at this you may, but when you put on the “armor of light” or wrap yourself in God’s comfort by doing exactly like you know God wants you to be doing and acting, you are overcome with a special feeling — just like putting on game socks.
As you meditate today bring to mind those moments when you wore God’s armor and played the game of life the way he wants you to play. What’s keeping you from putting on your “game socks” again?
