Mat 12:33 – Fruit trees

We had an avocado tree that produced the most amazing avos. However one year it stopped producing fruit. And then after several years when it began again, the avos were small and watery. We finally discovered the reason – we had changed the soil beneath the tree by making a kid’s sandpit. We would never have known there was a problem with the tree if it hadn’t been for the fruit. Jesus said, “If you grow a healthy tree, you’ll pick healthy fruit. If you grow a diseased tree, you’ll pick worm-eaten fruit. The fruit tells you about the tree.” (Matthew 12:33). Jesus wasn’t talking about trees he was talking about us. Your words are a window to your heart. Your actions are an insight to your thoughts. How are you speaking and behaving? What does this say about the real you? Plant your life in Jesus and you will see the wonder of his divine fruit in your life – love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
