Gullible Me

I believed my friend when she said that when a penguin dies, the others form a circle around it, dig a hole in the ice with beaks and wings and bury the dead bird.

I believed her right till the point when she told me that then they all sing out this chorus.

“Freeze a jolly good fellow.”
“Freeze a jolly good fellow.”

The gullible believe anything they’re told; the prudent sift and weigh every word. (Proverbs 14:15, MSG)

Don’t suppress the Spirit, and don’t stifle those who have a word from the Master. On the other hand, don’t be gullible. Check out everything, and keep only what’s good. Throw out anything tainted with evil. (1Thessalonians 5:19-22, MSG)

Prayer- Father, help us make sure that every “good” thing is the real thing. May we never be gullible in regard to smooth-talking evil. Help us be alert to evil by enjoying the best of Jesus. Amen. (From Romans 16:19-20, MSG)
