Don't you hate clothing items labeled "one size fits all?" That is misleading advertizing, and virtually impossible! If it is small enough to properly fit a tiny person, it is far too little to fit a large one. In order to fit a large individual the smaller people are wearing something as big as a tent! I speak from experience; because I have a very small foot. I often wear children's shoes, as they are more affordable; and in many instances there is a larger selection. In irritation I have slipped into one size fits all ladies socks, and they were way too big.
There is one article of clothing that honestly meets claims to fit all. "Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the whiles of the devil (Ephesians 6:11 NKJ)." If the armor fit too tightly or hung loosely, slipping off shoulders we would be distracted by the discomfort. We must firmly stand! "Therefore take up the full armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all to stand (Ephesians 6:13 NKJ)." The Apostle Paul describes a "standing room only" place of battle! Our armor allotment offers plenty of leg and elbow room, giving us freedom of movement to oppose evil forces. It is always a snug, yet comfortable fit as molded to each of us individually. God's size fits all!
