Oranges are juicy and can have a sweet flavor. Bananas are yellow and taste good with ice cream. Apples have different color red, green, and yellow. Grapes are good in any form either juice or raisins. Pineapples are good when eaten alone or with other foods. These fruit grown on trees or a vine are known by their different characteristics.
Jesus said, “ For each tree is known by its own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they pick grapes from a briar bush.”(Luke 6:44) He referred to trees and their characteristics. He made a great point. Trees and their fruit have certain characteristics and so do people.
“The good man out of the good[aa]treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth what is evil; for his mouth speaks from [ab]that which fills his heart.”(Luke 6:45)
People can be good or evil. Their actions are their fruit. The heart is where the seeds are planted, watered, and are grown. Change the mind and the heart then the fruit. God authors this change and leads into repentance.
Challenge: Saints, the heart needs God’s word to plant righteous seeds, water them, and grow into holy fruit. God has given the Holy Spirit as the helper in this process toward fruit that is sweet and tastes good to the soul.
