The Warrior and the Shield

The warrior was strong. Everyone believed in him. He planned the fights, he lead them. His power was unfathomable and he believed in the greatest power of God.

One day, the warrior was given a shield. All his life he was using just his wits, and strength. He carried the shield with him and learned how to use it. He relied not just on his own prowess, but rather became knowledgeable on where and when to shield himself.

But then, there are times when the shield fell, got hit or scarred. In these times, the warrior knows he has to get up, fight, and pick up the shield. There were also instances when the shield's handle would be broken, and it was up to the warrior whether to weld the handle and make it better, for it to be used for another battle. All those times, he wished to the Lord that the shield and him would become better partners.

The warrior liked his shield, and never would he part with it, even if he would not use it.
