"Make a tree good and its fruit will be good, or make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad, for a tree is recognized by its fruit." NIV
"Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit." KJV
Just like the fruit on a tree reveals to us whether the tree is a good healthy tree or a barren, diseased tree, our actions reveal to those around us if we are truly children of God or not. What type of fruit, if any, are we producing?
Heavenly Father, we can only produce good fruit by your grace through faith. Help us to examine the fruit we are producing and seek You to help us produce good fruit for Your kingdom. In Jesus' name. Amen.
