Don't Be Fooled

While on our trip to the mountains, Ronnie and I visited the Knoxville Zoo.  It was small but had some very beautiful and interesting creatures.  When I saw this fellow basking in the sun, I immediately said--hyena.  I was wrong.  This is an African wild dog.  Upon further reading, I found out that hyenas are more closely related to cats. In our world today sometimes things are not what they seem.  We must depend on God's Word and the whispering of the Holy Spirit to lead us.  1 John 4:1 Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world.
