The ear trieth words, as the mouth tasteth meat

Daily Light Devotions - July 15 - Evening

The ear trieth words, as the mouth tasteth meat.

for the ear tests words as the palate tastes food. 1 

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 

Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgment." 3 

I speak as to sensible people; judge for yourselves what I say. 4 

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. 5 

He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.' 6 

The spiritual person judges all things, but is himself to be judged by no one. 7 

And he said to them, "Pay attention to what you hear: with the measure you use, it will be measured to you, and still more will be added to you. 8 

"'I know your works, your toil and your patient endurance, and how you cannot bear with those who are evil, but have tested those who call themselves apostles and are not, and found them to be false. 9

but test everything; hold fast what is good. 10 

To him the gatekeeper opens. The sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. A stranger they will not follow, but they will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers." 11
