This evening I am reminded of my Dad's birthday. Today he would have been 91. When I think of protection and love, I think of my Dad. That is the reason one person would protect another person from any kind of harm, because of love.
Just as our heavenly father loves each of us and protects us. We must protect our loved ones. Protect from whom or what should be our question. From the enemy, the evil one, who has many devious ways to inflict physical and spiritual harm.
One way to daily protect our loved ones is to PRAY for them and their well being. Powerful and effective against the one who can destroy. I think protection comes naturally, but be aware of standing up for what is right to be an example for the next generation.
