Matthew 7:15-20

“Beware of false prophets. They come to you disguised as sheep, but in their hearts they are vicious wolves. You will know them by what they produce. “People don’t pick grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles, do they? In the same way every good tree produces good fruit, but a rotten tree produces bad fruit. A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, and a rotten tree cannot produce good fruit. Any tree that fails to produce good fruit is cut down and thrown into a fire. So you will know them by what they produce.


Who are the “prophets” in our time? It occurs to me that few are religious leaders. Most of the prophets of today are scientists. These are the ones ones who are predicting mankind’s future. And like the prophets of old, some are twisting “facts” to fit their world view. Which are right and which are wrong? I don’t know. But I do know who holds the future and I know he holds my hand.

Prayer Jesus, you are the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow; the only true universal constant. God, it is you who know the true future. Keep us, your children, from being led into fear and worry over what tomorrow may bring. We trust our eternal souls to you. Amen.
