Paris, Texas or Paris, France?

One time when I was younger I was watching this tv show and one of the characters had gone on vacation. Well after a while another one of the characters wanted to join him but could only remember that they had gone to Paris. So they booked there ticket and flew over to Paris only to find out that their friend was on vacation in Paris, Texas.
We can equally get confused in our lives when we don't hear something quite right or we think something is one way when really it is another.  This is what Satan strives to do. He wants us to think that we can gain happiness by doing one thing that seems close but not quite. He truly is out to confuse us. "Wo unto them that call evil good, and good evil, that put darkness for light, and light for darkness, that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!" 2 Nephi 15:20 But if we know that this is his plot then we can stay on guard to not let this happen. We can remain holding on the the iron rod. Meaning reading our scriptures, going to church, saying our prayers, helping those in need. When we do these things then we won't be deceved by Satan because when he says,"Let's go to Paris," you can say, "Well I think Texas is just to hot right now. I think I will stay where I am at."
