Being Prepared, Ephesians 6:10-24

I'm preparing to teach, "Being Prepared," based on Ephesians 6:10-24. To be skillful in living as a Christian, we have to remember to use the spiritual armor God has provided. All too often we get into battle and forget to use the resources God had made available to us.

To add a little humor, I thought about including a slide containing the following examples of where someone forgot something. I included the links to the stories, but I'm not sure they are important other than to note that these incidences are real.

1. I sent a letter but forgot to put a STAMP on it?

2. I am pregnant and was told to take iron tablets but forgot!!

3. Woman rescued dogs from fire but forgot her grandson

4. I got her number, but forgot her name, how do I proceed?

5. Man attempts drive-by shooting, but forgets to roll down car window

To get your class talking, you might want to ask the class to share an incident where they forgot something. Tie the discussion to the lesson by telling members how important it is for believers not to forget to use the spiritual armor God has provided.
