Don’t be Deceived

February 9, 2021

Jesus replied: “Watch out that you are not deceived. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am he,’ and, ‘The time is near.’ Do not follow them. Luke 21:8

 I saw this post online and it made me think of how we are fooled by people and things all around us. The image shows a stack of what looks like four perfect pancakes dripping in maple syrup. However, the caption reads, “Motor oil is often used instead of syrup for pancake commercials because the oil won’t be absorbed by the pancakes.”

Wow! When we put our faith and trust in the wrong person or things, we are only fooling ourselves. God doesn’t trick us or show us one thing and give us something else. God is, and will always be, true to His word. 

This week, when you are stopped at a traffic light, think of three things that God has done for you or others. For example, God has given us the Holy Spirit, so we are always connected to Him.
