See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.
(Colossians 2:8 (NIV))
Remember that the world was turned over to Satan and all things of the world are his. This includes human tradition, false religions and many of the things that we take for granted as routine. With this in mind, it can be easy to be deceived. We must keep our eyes on Jesus and follow His tradition of doing only what the Father does.
For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me
Jesus did only what the Father instructed him to do. We should keep this in mind when we go into the world for our daily lives and routines.
Listen for God. Listen to God.
