Be Careful Little Ears What you Hear

Do you remember that song “Be careful little eyes what you see?” In each of its verses, it gave a warning to be careful in “what you see, what you hear, and where you go.” I think that’s an important warning, don’t you? It’s easy to get misled, especially in a world that is ruled over by Satan, who Jesus calls “the prince of this world.” Satan is on TV, in the Capital of every country and state, in the music we listen to, and, heck, he even shows up to Church on Sunday. His aim is to kill, steal and destroy, and to bring as much destruction as he can before his time is up. He knows his days are numbered, and he wants to take you and I with him to destruction.


In this same vein, it’s amazing what people will do with Scripture when it fits their agendas, isn’t it? People on the right use it one way, people on the left use it another, and it’s usually to stab at a person who opposes their viewpoints. That kind of thinking is easy to get caught up in, isn’t it? It’s VERY easy to get caught up, especially if we have strong viewpoints, to read our own interpretations of scripture. Yet God isn’t there to affirm our political beliefs: through the Scriptures, His desire is to make us Holy. The purpose of sending Jesus was to make us Holy. The very purpose of implanting the Holy Spirit within us is to make us holy. So be careful little ears what you hear. Seek God’s wisdom and interpretation. Don’t let the world influence you with gifts, and glitz and glamour. Satan is constantly shifting to fit the time and season, but God and His word remain the same, yesterday and today and will forevermore. Stick to Him.


2 Timothy 3


But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people. For among them are those who creep into households and capture weak women, burdened with sins and led astray by various passions, always learning and never able to arrive at a knowledge of the truth. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these men also oppose the truth, men corrupted in mind and disqualified regarding the faith. But they will not get very far, for their folly will be plain to all, as was that of those two men.


You, however, have followed my teaching, my conduct, my aim in life, my faith, my patience, my love, my steadfastness, my persecutions and sufferings that happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, and at Lystra—which persecutions I endured; yet from them all the Lord rescued me. Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evil people and impostors will go on from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
