All That Glitters isn't Gold

November 23 // 1 Corinthians 8:20-21

Scripture
Matthew 16
8Aware of their discussion, Jesus asked, "You of little faith, why are you talking among yourselves about having no bread? 9Do you still not understand? Don't you remember the five loaves for the five thousand, and how many basketfuls you gathered? 10Or the seven loaves for the four thousand, and how many basketfuls you gathered? 11How is it you don't understand that I was not talking to you about bread? But be on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees." 12Then they understood that he was not telling them to guard against the yeast used in bread, but against the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees.
Observation
the gospel according to Matthew, Jesus tells His disciples beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducee's,His disciples thought Jesus was speaking of the Bread that might be given to them from the Pharisees, so they sayed, it's because we have no bread. Jesus aware of there talking told them "He of little faith" did you forget the loaves of bread i provided when the masses came to be fed, when i said to beware i was speaking of the teaching from pharisees.
Application
As i read through these scriptures i thought of how will i apply this to my life. i must be aware of people who all tho they have the right attire and the words they use may even be glamorous i must beware, everything that is sayed must be aligned and filtered through the the lord, only by doing that will i consider it.
Prayer
thank you Father, for when you came down you not only saved me, you also set in my heart the rules that I must obliged by, Father i pray that you give me the wisdom to discern through and filter out these things that might be harmful for me and let me hold on to things nourishing to my soul Amen.
