Bearing Good Fruit

The current culture and environment we find ourselves living in can be quite toxic at times.  We live in a day when a persons first reactions or thoughts are blurted out onto Social Media platforms.  Comments, some extremely cruel are typed out on news stories and articles written and reading those can disturb our peace and our emotional well being.

What does the Word of God have to say about this?  If we are a Christian and live under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, filled with the Holy Spirit of God, we must take heed to what His instructions to us are.  May those who read this do a heart check and examine it to determine if we are indeed bearing good fruit.  The Word says that what has been “stored” in our heart will be heard in your words.  May we guard our hearts and hear what the Spirit of God is speaking to us.

Luke 7:43-45 The Passion Translation says: “You’ll never find choice fruit hanging on a bad, unhealthy tree.  And rotten fruit doesn’t hang on a good, healthy tree.  “Every tree will be revealed by the quality of fruit that it produces.  Figs or grapes will never be picked off thorn trees.  People are known in this same way.  Out of the virtue stored in their hearts, good and upright people will produce good fruit.  But out of the evil hidden in their hearts, evil ones will produce what is evil.  For the overflow of what has been stored in your heart will be seen by your fruit and will be heard in your words.”
