Jesus’s star couldn’t be ignored, avoided or obscured. That’s good news! When your star rises, many will be attracted to your light. Your focus shouldn’t be on the many attracted but your source.
Amongst the ‘many’ would be fraudsters who by their actions will reveal their hearts. Their intentions will be clearly self-serving, designed to overwhelm and destroy.
Be aware that people’s best intentions mean nothing.
Fraudsters are exposed by their actions. Their intentions clearly self-serving, designed to overwhelm and destroy reveal a contradiction. Dangerous as vipers are they and their smooth words nonetheless should be avoided. They reveal who they are…for words alone do not make great men or women.
Herod was a fraud…his words and actions were exact opposites.
Herod was a ‘worship’ fraud. #Lent #40Days
It begs the question: Are you a fraud?
“Herod then arranged a secret meeting with the scholars from the East. Pretending to be as devout as they were, he got them to tell him exactly when the birth-announcement star appeared. Then he told them the prophecy about Bethlehem, and said, “Go find this child. Leave no stone unturned. As soon as you find him, send word and I’ll join you at once in your worship.” (Matthew 2:7, 8 MSG)
