WHERE’S YOUR HELMET?
HAVE YOU EVER had your "bell rung"...? Believe me, it is not something to aspire to. It's totally disorienting. Even dangerous. That's why head slaps are outlawed in the NFL. Can you imagine playing football in full uniform, except for your helmet? Ouch! Your bell would he run on the first play, and you'd be utterly useless for the rest of the game. The Roman helmet was made of thick leather, sometimes covered with metal plates, sometimes with a molded bronze or iron shell, sometimes with extended cheek plates. It was intended to protect the head and face, and even the eyes, in battle. THOUGHT: Nothing is more critical than having your wits about you regarding what is happening on life's battlefield. The head is the centerpiece of perspective in a fight. The helmet of salvation is indispensable to the Christian soldier.
