From today’s reading...
Beloved, do not trust every spirit
but test the spirits to see whether they belong to God,
because many false prophets have gone out into the world.”
During nuclear disarmament talks with Russia, Ronald Reagan made the Russian proverb "Trust, but verify" popular in the English lexicon.
While Reagan was quoting Russian proverbs, General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev quoted Ralph Waldo Emerson,
The reward of a thing well done is to have done it."
Ensure the testing you perform on the spirits supposedly of God are well done, which is easier to do as you...
Stay the course.
Keep the faith.
