We live in a hectic world, where information is being slung at us 24/7. The messages we receive by word-of-mouth, in print, on TV or on social media all help form our thoughts, feelings and choices.  So we would be wise to listen critically to all messages. Yes, even from our favorite sources.  

Jesus gets into this topic by speaking of guarding the gate.  Intentions is what determines if someone is an intruder or guest.  And the repercussions for us are deep and wide.
