Word-Filled Wednesday – Matthew 7:16

Ye shall know them by their fruits.
Do men gather grapes of thorns,
or figs of thistles?
Matthew 7:16

Jesus declared that one can know a person’s character by what he or she does. Our actions reveal what we truly are.

AMEN! So true, so true! Especially when we go through trials...who we really are when we're pressed....really seeps out! May it always be the aroma of the Lord Jesus Christ! If not, then may we repent so that next time, it will be.

Bless you!

We would do well to keep this verse before us at all times. Our lives are living testmonies to God or the enemy! Whew! Compelling!

Refreshing presentation of a truth that should stop us all in our tracks...are we
fruit bearing? Is the fruit clean and beautiful or do the thorns push us away.

Mariposa said...

So true!

Have a blessed Wednesday!

I have to stop and ask myself this question at times, "what fruit are you bearing?". It always puts everything into perspective!

I knew you were already participating in a few blog events-we would love to have you if you have the time! I listed you in the post (won't post until tomorrow) Have a great day!
