If there was a lion outside your door

What would you do if there was a lion outside your door this morning? 
You wouldn't feed it.
Or play fetch.
Or let your children play with it.
Nor would you invite it into your home.
What if I told you that today it would happen without a shadow of a doubt?
You are going to come face-to-face with this guy.
8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 9 Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.
 10 And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. 2 Peter 5:8-10

What are you doing today to guard yourself and your family from the one
that prowls around seeking someone to devour?
