Every two years I have to complete continuing education to keep up my licensing. This year I waited until the last minute and with only three days left I finally got it done! I don’t like to admit this, but even though it’s an open book test, I can never seem to make 100%. The questions are hard, but the answers are harder! They may change one word to make the answer just slightly off and though it resembles the book, it’s not exactly right. This is such a good comparison to what we have to deal with when it comes to the people bringing the Word of God. Their words seem good and right, but could be slightly off, causing you to be led astray. Jesus warned us that this might happen and will happen! He said that we would recognize them by their fruit. How do you know what fruit is good? We have to be diligent in our efforts to stay in tune with the Holy Spirit and know our Bible.
"Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? Matthew 7:15-16
