Lev. 4-6; Act. 14

S- "Power of Influence" Acts 14:4 The people of the city were divided; some sided with the Jews, others with the apostles.

O- Paul & Barnabus went to Jewish synagogue to preach the message to the Jews and Gentiles. Those that did not believe in what they were saying, used their opinions to influence those who were believing the word, and poisoned their minds, to turn follow their influence and not the influence of Paul & Branabus. Thus, the city became divided.

A-Our opinions are not always the truth, it's jut our opinion of what we think and feel are the truth. When we use our opinions to sway and influence others, it's not good, especially if it is in a negative way. False statements can poison the minds of even the open-minded. It is so important for us to get our information first-hand rather than from others. God wants us to speak with pure hearts and minds, and not just give our opinion. God influencers is what He is looking for.

P-Father, help me to keep my opinion to myself, especially if it is about another person. Teach me to see things through your eyes and not judge and wrongly accuse.
Let us be God-influencer that work together for the Kingdom and not influence a divide, with a negative opinion. Unity and pure hearts and minds is what I long for. Amen
