Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth , and having put on the breastplate of righteousness , and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace ; in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation , and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints, and pray on my behalf, that utterance may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in proclaiming it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
EPHESIANS 6:10-20 NASB
So, I finally allowed my daughter to get a gerbil last year. She named it Squirt.
She treats that thing like a queen.
The Gerbil has a penthouse.
Apparently they love eating apple wood. So I went and cut several branches off my apple trees and she loves it.
Oh, and the Gerbil has taken over the doll house toys too.
I suppose it’s a fairly good pet. And it’s easy to clean her cage.
So if you’ve been putting off letting your kids have a Gerbil due to maintenance, go ahead and give in. Its actually much easier than the pet hamster I had as a kid. And the Gerbil doesn’t bite like that evil hamster did.
