Some people simply are gullible. Desiring to think the best of others, they find it hard to believe that others may be deceptive. Ignorant about the power of evil, they think everyone has good intentions, and have a hard time distinguishing truth from lies. “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits…A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.” – Matthew 7:15-19
So today, make sure that you are careful about what you allow into your mind and what you believe. Remember: The devil constantly seeks to spread confusion, to attack, and to bring death, discouragement, and disease. Be on guard, and be careful who you allow to influence your life.
