“In their greed these teachers will exploit you with fabricated stories. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.” (2 Pet 2:3)
Sometimes things are not as they seem. People’s motives may not be clear as we relate to them in a workplace setting. Those slick storytellers come in all shapes and sizes, and we should be wary of their persuasive talk.
There are many who would look to exploit you for any number of reasons. Fortunately, we serve someone who sees the very heart of every person. He can expose the thoughts of man, and we should be careful to listen to Him.
If you don’t feel a peace about something, whether it be a person, decision, or situation, take the time to clarify. God can use those inner feelings to show you something beyond the smooth sales pitch.
Quick Prayer: Open my eyes to the storytellers. Amen.
