The Gold Piece

Recently I read an article where the author used an example of a $10 gold piece, a $10 bill and a $10 counterfeit bill.  He related the gold piece as God, the bill as man and the counterfeit as error, evil or satan.  Man has God behind him as the $10 bill is backed by Fort Knox and the counterfeit is just that, counterfeit with nothing behind it.  When we are tempted by anything not of God, we can see it as nothingness, powerless, counterfeit.  This was so reassuring to me.

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness.”  Galatians 5:22.  Anything opposing those are counterfeit!
