St. George is legendary, the only saint associated with the slaying of the mythical dragon. In modern times, some turn to video games to achieve the same result. But we can all be dragon slayers. The ultimate dragon is, of course, Satan (see, e.g., Revelation 12:9), who antagonizes us with dragons of our own that undermine our plans and goals. Maybe your dragons are basic things, like making the bed, getting to work on time, cleaning the house and so on. Or maybe you’ve got bigger dragons to slay, like addiction, broken relationships or failing health. Like George, you need to don your armor, particularly the sword of the Spirit—the Word of God (Ephesians 6:14-17). The sword is a powerful weapon. Wield it so that when the dragon seeks to slay you, you’ll neutralize him and successfully pursue your goals with diligence and determination (Hebrews 11:6).
