“This is how Avshalom behaved toward anyone in Israel who came to the king for judgment, and this way Avshalom stole the hearts of the people of Israel.”
2 Samuel 15:6 CJB
Like in the days of David, nothing really has changed. We have leaders who are deceptive and deceive the people! We see that in the church, politics and in media, people deceiving for greed and power! We all need to be on guard!
“For men like these are not serving our LORD the Messiah but their own belly; by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the innocent.”
Romans 16:8 CJB
The scriptures warn us over and over about deceptive people who are only out to enrich themselves! The best way to be aware of these things is by being in the scriptures!
“You reject all who stray from your laws, for what they deceive themselves with is false.”
Psalm 119:118 CJB
Today, we need to always be on-guard, watching and praying about all we see and hear! The world is full of deception and the safest place to be is with and in the word of God!
Have a blessed day!
