Matthew 7:16

"By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?" NIV

"Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?" KJV

It has been said that the longer a couple is married, the more they take on similar characteristics. We know that our children take on our characteristics and mannerisms and that it is from the close and years of time they spend with us. This same principle applies to the amount of time we spend and the closeness we share with the Lord. The more time we spend with Him, the more like Him we will become. We will take on His characteristics and behaviors. Others cannot help but notice the difference between us and the world.

Heavenly Father, we ask that You would increase our desire to spend time in Your presence. Show us places where we waste time or engage ourselves with people and activities that have no long lasting value. Then we can use that time being in Your presence. We ask this in the name of Jesus, Amen.
