Jesus said to his disciples: “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but underneath are ravenous wolves. By their fruits you will know them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? Just so, every good tree bears good fruit, and a rotten tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a rotten tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire. So by their fruits you will know them.”
You cannot teach what you do not know – because you do not bear fruit if you do not know the Lord. What kind of fruit do you bear? Do you bear the good fruit of the Lord or the rotten fruit of the world? Your soul knows the difference if you will just listen.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you teaching me the difference between your good fruit and the rotten fruit of the world. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
Teach me the way of your decrees, O Lord.
