October 8, 2017 – Deception

Daily Challenges

So much in our world has changed in such a short time.
But the one thing that has been constant from the beginning; is deception.

Some of us want to and desire to believe in the better good of all.
But the reality is, that sometimes, there isn’t always a better good.
If there was always a better good, then evil wouldn’t exist.

It breaks our heart to be deceived for any reason.

The question is, does it break our hearts to be the one deceiving another?

What Else Can We Do?

The number one rule, don’t believe everything you hear, read or even see.

Ask the right questions:
Does it make sense? Is it practical?
Is it probable or possible?

Trusting God doesn’t always make sense, nor does it always seem practical.
But it is probable and possible, when your complete trust is in God.

There isn’t anyone or anything in this world that can be trusted
on the same level or to the same degree as God can be.

Our minds can’t always know the truth from the false, but our heart can.
What does your heart tell you?

The Bible Says

Matthew 24:4-5
And Jesus answered and said to them; “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, “I am the Christ,” and will deceive many.

2 Timothy 3:13-15
But evil men and imposters will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

James 1:16-17
Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. Every good gift and very perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.

Bible Trivia: What was the first deception known to man and woman? (See Genesis 3 and 3:13)  And the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” The woman said. “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”
