Thought For The Day by Al Boulden

2 Timothy 4:3-4 “For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.”

Do we live in such a time? The Bible has withstood attacks and distortions over centuries. It remains the inerrant Word of God that stands as the litmus test of right and wrong. It reflects blessings for those who are obedient and curses for those who reject it. Satan is conniving and effectively injects a movement with words such as tolerance and love to sell a lie. Sin feels good for a moment and perhaps a season. But understand it is a myth that leads to destruction. Go to the Bible for answers. Live according to God’s teachings. Read Romans 1:18 – 32 as one source to see God’s response to those who walk in defiance. God warns us. He also encourages us. Stand on His Word with love and understanding. Stand firm….

Lord, thank You for warnings regarding lies that seem logical to itching ears. Prepare us to understand Truth and live accordingly. Prepare us, too, to stand firm against false teachings and those who attempt to justify ungodly living.

Live in Truth today.
