Protect Their Imaginations

My pastor was teaching in the book of Ephesians the other night. He said something that struck a cord in me and has been bouncing around my head ever since.
God made a check list for us to follow when putting on his whole armor. In part, the Belt of Truth to protect our loins. What are the loins but the reproductive part of us. In the Hebrew, it can also mean our imaginations. We "dream" things up and then act upon those dreams to make it a reality. Much like an architect imagined the skyscraper; the same as an artist imagining what will become of the lump of clay they are starting to mold.
The hard part these days is guarding the imaginations of our young ones.
In a world so bent on corruption, how can we afford to let our guards down where our children are concerned.
Violent video games, movies, books, even cartoons all seek to distort our children's imaginations.
To corrupt them in a way that their imaginations are no longer pure and innocent.

I have begun to pray a covering over my son's mind from the evil of this world. Purity of mind is such a precious thing. I constantly marvel at the workings of my Little Mister's imagination. He is so loving and sweet. 

Therefore put on God's complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day and having done all, to stand.

We made a Belt of Truth and read the scripture. 
Ephesians 6:10-18
