Proverbs 14:15 (Proverbs 14:15, NKJV) 15 The simple believes every word, But the prudent well considers his steps. There are many opinions out in the world on every kind of issue. If we take each man's word at face value then we will be dearly misled. For there are many decievers out there who will try to lead us away from the Lord. When we hear anything, we must take into account the entirety of God's full and true Word, before we make convictions, take actions, or make judgments. God's Holy Word is the only thing we can be completely sure in, so it is wise to carefully examine each statement against the Word. To live our lives as true servants and disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ, we must trust in HIM first and foremost! It is foolish to do otherwise!
