“But as for you, teach what accords with sound doctrine” (Titus 2:1).

There is good doctrine and doctrine which is not good.  Do not be led astray by wickedness, even in the guise of good religion.  Know that in the Lord there is that which is useful, but that the wicked one will send those along who will speak what itching ears want to hear.  Pay attention to what you say and to what you take in.  Let the Lord lead so that You may have good and sound doctrine leading you.

Lord, grant that I would have discerning ears that understand the difference between what is good and what is bad.  Lead me, Lord, so that I understand and take in what is good spiritual food and reject the junk garbage of this age.  Lead me into spiritual health so that I may know the good and do it.  When I am speaking of You, help me to be true to the Gospel and always speak the truth.

Holy Spirit, You know the condition in which I find myself.  You know what is right and what is perverse.  Guide me, Lord, so that I would discern the difference and reject what is not good and take in what is right.  Lead me, Lord, so that I may grow in this faith You have given me.  Guide me according to the Father’s will to live into the life that emulates Christ and grows in godliness.  Amen.
