"Be who you are" - Matthew 7:15-20

Beware of false prophets says the Lord. Beware of fake people, who pretend to be someone they are not. How do we identify them?

First, they use God’s name in vain to promote their evil agenda which is usually connected to gaining money and popularity. Friends, just because you met them at the church does not mean they are the one. Demons go to church too. The grass always looks greener when it is fake. Do not trust everything you see, for even salt looks like sugar.

Second, is that we can identify false prophets through the fruits of their labor. “You will know them by their fruits.” Today, we are reminded to be cautious of people whose actions do not match with their words. Actions show you who someone really is. Words show you who they pretend to be. False people are like clouds; when they disappear, the day is much brighter.

Finally, trust no one except the Lord because today there are so many fake people around. They may speak like an angel, they may act like a saint and even look heavenly, but deep within they are ravenous wolves. Friends, be yourself because an original is worth more than a copy. Do not pretend to be someone you are not but be someone you would be proud to know. Lord, thank you. I may not be perfect but at least I am not fake.

Fr. Jhack
