Hold Yourself Accountable:
- Don’t ignore the signs that someone may be a counterfeit and don’t be afraid to ask someone their intentions for being in your life.
Apply This Kingdom Principle:
- “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. 16 By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? 17 Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.” – Matthew 7:15-20 (NIV)
Take Action Now:
- Thoroughly examine your friendships and relationships, consider the signs and red flags that may exist and determine if there are any counterfeits in your life.
- If there are counterfeits in you life, before you act…pray and ask God how He prefers you handle the situation.
- Trust that God will provide you with the guidance you need and desire.
