Wooden Faith Wooden Work

There’s an old joke that goes:

"What would happen if you have a wooden car, with wooden wheels, wooden doors, and a wooden engine?"

"It wooden run"

(you can start laughing now…)

In the book of Ephesians, the apostle Paul tells us to "take up the shield of faith to extinguish the flaming arrows of the evil one." (Eph. 6: 16)

However, if the shield is made of wood, it will become a fuel for the flames rather than an  extinguisher.  I guess it’s time to upgrade my shield by  asking for a new one from the  Master Blacksmith.
