What I read today;
Genesis 24; Judges 11-12; Psalm 18; Isaiah 18; Mark 7-8; 1 Corinthians 2
In the Harry Potter movies and books, in every movie you always saw the students while attending the Defense of the Dark Arts Class.
In the early part of the series, a series of different teachers spent time helping the students to ward off the evil that was in the world. However, at the end of the series, the leaders of the community chose to prevent the teaching of these defenses.
How do we defend ourselves today from the world that tries to separate us from God? We use the gift of God’s word and focus on learning that word. If we immerse ourselves in the teachings of Jesus, we will draw nearer to God and be able to ward off the attacks of the world on our hearts and minds.
The Word of God is the ultimate defense against the dark arts.
