A Roman soldier’s breastplate would have been made “scale armor” with small pieces of metal layered over each other to form a strong protection for the wearer. It shouldn’t surprise us that our spiritual breastplate also has layers. Three to be precise, and these three layers act in concert to protect our hearts:
Right Thinking – I am God’s child, and I am a delight to Him.
Right Living – I know Who I am and Whose I am, and I will live like it.
Right Doing – I am God’s representative, and I will right the wrongs I see.
