A Daily Devotion for Tuesday, May 9
2 Corinthians 11:13-15
For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.
Paul is telling the people of the church of Corinth to be very careful, and not to follow false teachers. I am assuming when this was written, it was clear to his audience just who he was referring to. But we can learn from this letter, as well. Whenever we run into something or someone which teaches or leads us in a direction which makes us uncomfortable, we always have the Holy Spirit to turn to for guidance. I believe God will give us the wisdom to know in which direction to turn. God ultimately wants us to make the right choice, so I am confident discernment is there for us when we need it.
Holy Lord, thank you for leading and guiding me. Help me to remember to always turn to you first when I am confused or feeling unsure. Amen
