Colossians 2:8 NASB "See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ."I am not sure why I listened to them, but I knew as soon as I did, it was the wrong decision! Sometimes in life we look to others for advice when we already know what and how to do it. Today's verse shares about being taken captive by the world's view of things rather than God's! During an evening meal at the fire house, a topic came up and some men shared what they thought I should do. Even while listening to them share, I had this check in my spirit that something didn't sound right but... I went ahead and followed their advice only to find myself in deeper trouble than I had originally started with. Following where God leads us by His Holy Spirit will bring a peace that the world can't give us. It is like being a salmon and fighting the current to get back to the place of their birth, it's a struggle but if we remain strong in Christ, we will get there! Follow Christ, not man, so we are not deceived by the world's empty deception! peace, tom
