“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves” (Matthew 7:15).

Be careful whose word you trust.  Many slip a little garbage in the mix.  A little pollution is all it takes, and you are off and running in the wrong direction.  In a lifetime it may not seem to make much difference.  If one thinks about eternity, a false direction may cause you to miss the mark entirely.  Be led in the way of Christ alone, and not the way of Jesus and something else.  Look to the Lord alone for all things.

Lord, I am enamored by words that tickle my ears.  I have been led astray.  Guide me in the way of everlasting life.  Keep my compass and direct me as You know I need to be directed.  Keep me from wandering or wavering so that I may humbly walk in the way You are directing. Grant me ears that hear clearly so that I may walk in the way of truth.  Help me to understand when someone is slipping something else in.

Jesus, You alone give the words of eternal life.  Lead me in the way You know I need to go.  Help me always to understand that only by the power of the Holy Spirit can I discern what is right and true.  Lead me now and always to walk humbly with you, avoiding any who would lead me astray.  May I now and always walk in the way of everlasting life which You alone give.  Amen.
