Bear in mind that our Lord’s patience means salvation, just as our dear brother Paul also wrote you with the wisdom that God gave him. He writes the same way in all his letters, speaking in them of these matters. His letters contain some things that are hard to understand, which ignorant and unstable people distort, as they do the other Scriptures, to their own destruction. (2 Pet 3:15-16 NIV)
Prayer: LORD, when I am listening to someone, help me remember that while most people are sincere, some are sincerely misguided. Help me recognize when someone is speaking Your truth and wisdom versus saying something that is not true. Thank You for the understanding You bring and confirm as I seek the Truth in You with all my heart. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
