In their greed they will make up clever lies to get hold of your money. But God condemned them long ago, and their destruction will not be delayed.2 Peter 2:3
Be On Guard
Not only are there false teachers, but there are also people who are out to get whatever they can from you as this verse states. They want nothing more than to trick you, then get a hold of your money and possessions. Peter tells us here not to worry because God knows exactly who these people are. He is the one who will judge them accordingly. As with other sins, God is the only judge, he will be the one to judge the sins of the people.
Be on guard against people who speak falsely and for their own benefit. Instead, speak truth and love, make every effort to help others in need.
A Prayer to Remember
Help me guard my heart and life. May I always be watchful for those who want to take advantage of me.
