A Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing
The Upward Look

“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.” Matthew 7:15 NASB
Do you remember the cartoon where the wolf dresses up like a sheep in order to get close to the real sheep? When the horn sounds for the end of the work day, he sheds his sheep costume and walks away. That scene reminds me of this passage. False teachers have infiltrated the church in order to shear the sheep. Yet one day, maybe only when the trumpet sounds, they will shed their costume and their true identity will be discovered.
Lord Jesus, teach me to be discerning so that I will not be swayed by false teachers. Let me learn from Your Word how to recognize and follow what is right.
