Good Life Journal - Luke 6

Scripture - "For no good tree bears bad fruit, nor again does a bad tree bear good fruit, for each tree is known by its own fruit." - Luke 6:43

 

Observation - Jesus is teaching and makes this statement. He teaches that it is not about what you "do" but it is about who you are. The righteous man will produce good fruit because at his heart and core are righteousness. God deals with the heart and not what we may pretend to be or create on the outside.

 

Application - Producing fruit is something that takes time. You may be able to fake results for a season or two but ultimately the fruit of your life will be an overflow of who you are. Today, I want to focus on who God has called me to be and allow Him to produce good fruit in my life.

 

Prayer - Thank You Lord that You call me Yours. Help me to produce fruit that is after Your heart and pleasing to you.
