Be careful!

So important. Beware of people that leave fractured relationships in their wake! Divisions, strife… beware of people that do not seek peace and ensue it. A great reminder from Kim.

“I urge you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them. For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of naive people.” Romans 16:17-18

Whoa, these are serious warnings! Another reason for us to be in the Word each day- we need to know what it teaches us so we are aware when someone is leading us in the wrong direction! There are some very crafty, misleading people out there!! Psychics, fortune tellers, people who gossip, others who preach against God and His Truth, … they cause division amongst us and confusion in what we believe!!

God warns us to be careful of their “smooth talk and flattery” because we can be easily swayed from the Truth and our Salvation!!! These people are not serving our Lord and we need to be watchful and guarded not to become entrapped by their ways!

Father God, we are so naive at times and we need Your Wisdom to tell the difference between those who seek You and those who seek to serve themselves! Help us to be aware of the evil one and those he is influencing!
