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 thorn bushes, 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.”
What kind of fruit do you bear? If you speak the truth of God, you are bearing good fruit, preaching and living His word. If not, your life reflects the darkness of lies and deceptions. If you think you can hide your lived truth, you are wrong. By your fruits you will be known and darkness brings no life or growth.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, your truth is all I need to live my life. Your light, freedom and mercy bring the light of love into my life. Thank you and praise your holy name! Amen!
The Lord remembers his covenant forever, Alleluia!
