Jesus said to his disciples: “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but underneath are ravenous wolves. By their fruits you will know them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? Just so, every good tree bears good fruit, and a rotten tree bears bad fruit.” (Matthew 7:15-17)
Lord, we are so easily led astray. Help us to put our faith in you and yours alone. Grant us the wisdom to distinguish the wolves from the sheep in our everyday lives.
