Deceit Prevention January 7
Food for Thought (meditate on this): Col. 2:7
How could people be so gullible? Deceptions happen in every aspect of life. There are so many sects, cults, false prophets, and followers of them. There are also those who end up with the wrong people, making decisions that bring painful consequences, some losing lots of money or even losing their lives.
How does this occur so often? It’s simple. They are not grounded and built up in Jesus Christ and His Word, and they do not listen to His Spirit, making them easy prey to be led astray. Anytime you see someone making a mistake, you can be sure that he was deceived in one way or another.
Someone once said, “If you don’t know what you stand for, you will fall for anything.” True, but it’s not enough to stand for just anything; you must stand for what He stands. The only way to achieve that is to know Him through His Word and have a true relationship with Him, devoting mind, body and spirit to His way and will. It’s the best prevention for falling victim to deceit.
