Have you ever seen anyone deceived by sin? It’s easy to recognize from a distance, but it demonstrates just how vulnerable everyone is to deception. We talk ourselves into believing lies. Our hearts become hardened when we no longer care about respected opinions and shut out Godly influences. This is how a highly respected person can soon live a disgraceful life. Let’s warn each other. And be wise enough to receive such warnings with openness.
You must warn each other every day, while it is still “today,” so that none of you will be deceived by sin and hardened against God.
~ Hebrews 3:13 [NLT]
