WISE ABOUT GOOD, INNOCENT ABOUT EVIL

 
Romans 16:19b


". . .but I want you to be wise about what is good, and innocent about what is evil." NIV


". . .but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil." KJV


It is a very difficult thing to be living in a world of deceit that can fool the very elect of God's people. If we are wise to that which is good, we will be clinging to the things of God and praying for discernment and seeking ways to please Him. To be simple and innocent of evil is to never think on things that are contrary to God's ways, fleeing from that which temps us, and always keep ourselves from displaying a poor testimony that brings dishonor to our Lord.


Heavenly Father, please forgive us for allowing our minds to wander away to things that are not pleasing to You and that are sinful. Guard our hearts and minds that we will be wise about the things of Your kingdom and innocent of being drawn toward sinful things. We pray this in Jesus' name, Amen.
