Something to Ponder

Daily Devotional: Gullible

Every day we are assaulted with some form of deception: emails or text messages with deceptive claims, and plausible stories concocted in attempts to accomplish something illegal, immoral, or unbiblical.

Others have been deceived into buying products that sound too good to be true, following politicians with views that seem credible, and believing teachers who promise results that sound desirable but don’t work and lead them astray. This is why we need to heed the words of the Bible, be prudent, and not simply believe everything we hear.

The Bible encourages us to be careful whom we trust. The information we hear in this world may seem credible. And they may use this information to try to encourage us to buy something, go somewhere, vote for someone, or take some other action.

We need look no further than the example of Adam and Eve who allowed the deceptive words of the serpent to change their attitude about God, define their beliefs, and shape their lives. The consequences could not have been more dramatic.

This is why we need to heed the warnings in the Bible. Realize the dangers of being gullible, trusting people and products without checking their backgrounds, and believing whatever we hear just because it sounds plausible.

Be on guard against deception. Be spiritually sensitive, guided by biblical principles and the discernment of the Spirit.

Reflection Question: When have you been tempted not to see if something was from God?

Scripture Thought for the Day

“The simple believes every word, but the prudent considers well his steps.”—Proverbs 14:15 NKJV


  • Glenn: Glenn said when he received the Ezekiel book he didn’t read it right was because it was about Plan A and he was focused on Plan B. When he finally read the book, he called to apologize that he waited so long to read this amazing book. He couldn’t wait to share it with his friends and family so he ordered a box of books to share.
  • Doug & Janet: Doug & Janet have built a display for all of Larry Wilson’s books & booklets for their church, New Beginning Cowboy Fellowship Church, in Cleburne, Texas. It’s always a pleasure to hear from them every month when they call in to order more product for their display and to hear about the blessings their church has been experiencing. Their church broadcasts each service live on YouTube each Sabbath at 10:45am Central Standard Time.

Prayer Requests

  • Bob: Please pray for Bob, as he deals with recovery from surgery and future surgery.
  • Prisoners: Please pray for the prisoners on our mailing list. Pray especially for the ones that are passionate about sharing the end time message and Larry’s books.


  • Larry created the Ezekiel video series years ago. Recently it was transcribed into a book. Read it online:
  • Larry Wilson Library USB Flash Drive: This drive contains nearly all the videos, audios, printed materials, and charts Larry Wilson has presented over the past 25 years.
