A good tree can’t produce bad fruit, and a bad tree can’t produce good fruit. A tree is identified by its fruit. Figs are never gathered from thornbushes, and grapes are not picked from bramble bushes.Luke 6:43-44
Jesus seemingly made the understatement of the year with the verse below. However, it makes a lot of sense if you think through it a few times. Jesus is saying we cannot get something different than what we are planting. If we are constantly focusing on the negative… that’s what we will get. If we focus on the good, we might be surprised what happens.
- Focus on what I focus on.
- Plant good seeds in my life.
“Jesus, help me to realize that what I think about matters. What I do matters. Help me to honor you with my life so I keep the free flow of your goodness in my life.”
