In our Bible Reading today, Jesus told His followers that there would be false teachers. Jesus said in verses 4b-5, “Be careful! Don’t let any person fool you. Many people will come and use my name. They will say, ‘I am the Christ.’ And they will fool many people.” Verse 9 says that people will be treated badly because they believe in Jesus. And verse 10 tells us that some people will lose their faith. The false teachers will cause many bad things to happen.
These verses remind me to study the Bible every day. Then, when someone is teaching false things about God, I will know the truth. There are many people today who say they are pastors and teachers. But some of these people do not teach the truth from the Bible. Instead, they teach things that lead people away from God.
I encourage you to study the Bible every day. You might also use a Bible dictionary or concordance to help you understand the Bible more clearly. God will bless you and show you His truth.
