A reflection on recognizing people by the fruit they produce.

Based on a portion of the scripture assigned for today from the Gospel of Matthew (7:15-20) in which Jesus tells his disciples that good trees can produce only good fruit, and bad trees produce bad fruit.

  1. Naming and contributing our own ‘good fruits’ we are able to recognized the ‘good fruits’ of others. Discernment is important . Often I have bought fruit that I thought was good on the outside and inside it was not. The same for my own thoughts and actions. Asking the question, what is my motive for doing this ‘good deed’ is important. Thank you for the reminder.

    Thanks for looking more deeply into the reflection. It reveals more and more layers of meaning for me personally.
