What Jesus Did

"A good tree does not give bad fruit. Also, a bad tree does not give good fruit. Each tree is known by the fruit it gives. People don't gather figs from thorny weeds. And they don't get grapes from bushes! A good person has good things saved in his heart. And so he brings good things out of his heart. But an evil person has evil things saved in his heart. So he brings out bad things. A...
person speaks the things that are in his heart." 
Luke 6:43-45

Key Thought
Ultimately, all the principles Jesus talks about in Luke 6 are heart issues. Our hearts, not just our actions, need to be conformed to God's will. Yes, our actions are crucial. Yes, obedience is necessary. However, that obedience needs to be heartfelt and heart-driven. When it is, then our hearts determine the fruit we bear. So let's ask God to guard our hearts, cleanse our hearts, and conform our hearts to his own. 

Today's Prayer
Holy God, purify my heart. Remove from it all bitterness and rivalry. Get rid of self-interest and evil. Fill my heart with your love by the power of your Holy Spirit. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

  1. Hi Jan! I'm so sorry this has happened. I did go back and read that comment. Shame of her for those hateful things she said but you treated her comments kindly. I don't know why some folks just have to be mean. Praying for you and Tom.
    Blessings,
    Shelia ;)
