Do you believe “almost” everything you hear? Do you research to know that it’s a true statement? Or do you just speak it because you heard it, and it sounds good and true. We should all know what we’re talking about before we speak on things.
Just because you said it, or just because you heard it, doesn’t mean that it’s true. If you hear something long enough, you may quote it yourself, or even believe it, especially if it’s something you grew up on.
Some teach scripture because of what was heard, but don’t go to the word of God to see if it’s true.
We need to know that the words that are coming out of our mouth are the real deal. We don’t know who’s watching us, and who we are influencing.
Let’s do our homework before we try to teach others. . . we may learn something for ourselves, along the way. Read His word, before you teach His word.
I Timothy 4:7 (KJV) – but refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.
