This is one of those chapters that is packed with good stuff. But I think the good fruit section speaks to me the most today.
43 “A good tree can’t produce bad fruit, and a bad tree can’t produce good fruit. 44 A tree is identified by its fruit. Figs are never gathered from thornbushes, and grapes are not picked from bramble bushes. 45 A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. What you say flows from what is in your heart.
I've been asking myself what kind of fruit am I producing? Am I making a difference? I've worked in Christian Higher Ed for just over 26 years, have I really made the impact that God wanted me to. I'm not sure what the answer is to the last one especially. But this one thing I know:
22 The faithful love of the Lord never ends![b]
His mercies never cease.
23 Great is his faithfulness;
his mercies begin afresh each morning.
24 I say to myself, “The Lord is my inheritance;
therefore, I will hope in him!”
If you've never read Lamentations 3 or the entire book you should. When you read it you realize just how powerful those words are.
