WORD of the DAY

Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but underneath are ravenous wolves. (Matthew 7: 15)

How shall I live this Word?

In this context, the false prophets are not those who say wrong things, but those who do not do what they say.
The real danger is not that of saying wrong things, after all, the Gospel is clear enough. The problem is doing the Gospel, living it. The false prophet is the one who lives this inconsistency between saying and doing and makes this inconsistency a system of life instead of the place of conversion. Now we all have this inconsistency, it’s part of our life. So? We can say that we are called to be true prophets, that is, to be those who, before calling others to conversion, call themselves and we are all urgently called to this conversion!

May Your Spirit Jesus daily give us the courage to live the Word of Your Gospel!

The Voice of Pope Francis, Homily at St. Martha, January 7, 2014

If this is in line with the Lord, you will be fine, but if it is not … Test the spirits to see if they really come from God, because many false prophets have come into the world. Prophets or prophecies or proposals: “I want to do this!” But this does not lead you to the Lord, it takes you away from Him. This requires vigilance. The Christian is a man or a woman who knows how to watch over their heart. And many times our heart, with so many things that come and go, seems like a local market: full of everything, you find everything there … No! We must test if this is of the Lord or is not – to remain in the Lord.
