NO HIPPOCRITE ZONE


1 Timothy 4:16


"Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers." NIV


"Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee." KJV


Why do we need to watch our lives and doctrine? The answer is easy. How many times have we witnessed the hypocrites who say one thing and do another? We can fall into that just as quickly as the next if we are not watching. That's the goal of the evil one, to get us to discredit God, destroy our walk with God, and extinguish the desire of another to try God's way. We have to watch what we say and how we live. Our salvation and that of everyone's around us is affected by it.


Heavenly Father, forgive us for not being as watchful about how we talk and live. If we have caused anyone to stumble because we have not been consistent, we ask that you make right the damage we have done. Help us to always be watchful and aware of how we can affect others and even keep them from wanting to be a part of your kingdom. In Jesus' name, Amen.

Yes. So easy to talk a good game, isn't it? I'm a good talker. Ha. But it sure is hard being honest with ourselves and actually walking the walk He intends for us.

Great post, doctor!

This Daily Grace seems to be a bulls eye to me everyday. Just today, I have been going over the same things in my life. All I can say again is AMEN.
