Deceived

Today's reading: 1 Kings 13:11-34

Our passage today, 1 Kings 13:11-34, is one I find difficult to fully grasp and understand. It seems odd to me that the consequences for the prophet who is deceived into sinning are so great in comparison to the prophet who blatantly lies and causes the man of God to sin. Even so, the facts are clear that the man sent by God to confront Jeroboam took his eyes off of God after delivering his message and leaving the city. This change in focus, led him down the path to sin. He didn't bother to consult God about taking a meal with the older prophet, nor did he receive word from God that God had changed what He wanted and expected the man to do.

What caution does this passage provide about letting down our guard as we're serving God? What did you see or learn about consulting God from this difficult passage? Tami

Well, to start with, we learn that we can't trust everyone who claims to belong to God. Their lives need to show the evidence.
