Smooth Talkers

These verses warn us about people who ‘smooth-talk’ their way into our homes. Today, it’s done through more than just the door. TV, internet, or phone all can help us lose our way if we are not careful.  (The July 11 devotional describes the smooth-talkers in depth.)

These are the kind of people who smooth-talk themselves into the homes of unstable and needy women and take advantage of them; women who, depressed by their sinfulness, take up with every new religious fad that calls itself “truth.” They get exploited every time and never really learn. These men are like those old Egyptian frauds Jannes and Jambres, who challenged Moses. They were rejects from the faith, twisted in their thinking, defying truth itself. But nothing will come of these latest impostors. Everyone will see through them, just as people saw through that Egyptian hoax.  (2 Timothy 3:6-9, MSG)

Prayer – Lord, give us grace not to fall for these deceptive ideas and their carriers. Amen
