Spice up your morning tea or coffee routine with some Biblical Truth! This ceramic mug is inspired by Matthew 7:15-20.
15 “Beware of false prophets,who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.16 You will know them by their fruits.Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles?17 Even so,every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them."Matthew 7:15-20 NKJV
Wolves don't always come dressed up as Rev.Wolf. They are sometimes friends, family members, teachers, mentors, celebrities, and more. They come as people you love and trust and therefore you least suspect them. Not everyone that smiles in your face is your friend. Here Jesus warns his followers to watch out for false prophets and their teachings. He tells them that they will be able to know a person's true colors by the fruit they produce, or in other words, by their actions. A wolf's actions won't link up with Jesus' teachings. In order to properly discern a person's actions, you will need to be grounded in the Bible and have a solid prayer life with God.

"God, you are so amazing! Words cannot describe how much I love and adore you. Please forgive me of my sins, shortcomings, and of every instance where I did not follow your divine will.
I come to you in need of direction regarding [insert name]. Please reveal to me whether they are friend or foe and direct me according to your will on what path I should take moving forward regarding this relationship. Give me the strength to ignore what I want and submit myself to your will. Order my steps Lord.
Also, give me the strength to share my testimony with others who have been tricked or cheated by wolves in sheep's clothing too. Guide my words so that they are a reflection of your will. Penetrate their hearts with your love and guide them towards a relationship with you and Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. I thank you in advance for what you will do. In Jesus's name, I pray, AMEN!"
