A wise practice each morning is to dress for success. The best way is to dress two times, not once! First, dress for the day to look your best for the jobs at hand. As you put on each object, also mentally dress with a character quality.

Undergarments – put on a positive mental attitude.

Socks – put on an attitude of peace.

Dress or pants – put on a love of hard work.

Shirt or sweater – put on the breastplate of truth, justice, and righteousness.

Belt – put on truth and integrity.

As you prepare your face, clothe yourself with wisdom and right thinking.

Clearly Paul was one of the great thinkers of his day. As I study his writings, I believe his intellect is equal to Augustine, Aristotle, Plato, Socrates, and all the great thinkers past and present.

For this reason, memorization of Ephesians 6:10-16 is a powerful and daily influence to win the day.

The challenge Paul gives boldly is to put on the full armor of God.

There is a war going on both globally and in the individual hearts of all people regardless of nationality, race, age, or social status. We are all at war!

The solution is to dress for success! For Crowell this means to put on the full armor of God.
