“The simple believeth every word: but the prudent man looketh well to his going.” ~ Proverbs 14:15

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:” ~ 1 Peter 5:8

Our text makes an instructive distinction between the simple and the prudent. The simple accept new information without critique, without judgment. And, therefore, the simple are easily led astray. However, the prudent man carefully watches his steps: he tests new information to determine if is leading down the right path.

There is far too much “simple” thinking in The Church today. Various fads spring up and lead Believers astray, because of a lack of knowledge and laziness. The Bible is available to us and every Believer has the Holy Spirit as a guide. The challenge is whether we will use the tools God has provided us with; or if we will continue to refuse to study His Word. The choice is ours. Will we be simple? Or, will we be prudent?

“That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive” ~ Ephesians 4:14

“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” ~ 1 John 4:1
