A Roof or a Hat?

Every day I walk past a corner fence post the size of a tree trunk, with a rusty steel inverted-V-shaped hat on it. Or is it a roof?

I guess it doesn’t matter. The purpose must be to keep the rain from settling on the open grain of the wood, permeating and rotting it before its time. Usually they paint them with some sort of tar or impermeable gloop. But this one is different. This one is wearing a hat. Or sporting a roof.

So where am I going with this image? Just thinking, if you let anything rest on you for long enough, it will permeate eventually and possibly introduce some sort of rot. The culture of the times – if we allow it to saturate us it no doubt has some sort of altering effect which is not good. Thought systems which are anti-life. Hurts done to us in the past. Unforgiveness. Anger. The list goes on.

We need some sort of head protection. A hat. Or a roof. 

Scripture offers the armour of God, with its helmet of salvation.

Interesting. Helmet of salvation. Without it on, the rot can set in.
