What Kind of “Fruit” Do We Produce?

 

Many victims of abuse have been fooled by deceptive people. The warning signs get ignored as words or acts of being “sorry” are expressed or done… then the cycle continues again. Now, victims have asked how to tell if someone is truly a “good” person since  so many get deceived.  Well, Galatians 5 and Matthew 7 explain the difference in behaviors…

Galatians 5:19-21 says,The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like.”

Then Galatians 5:22-23 says, “the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.”        

                                                                         

Now, Matthew 7:17-18 discusses these good and bad “fruit”when it explains that “every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.

So, as we think about this, what kind of “fruit” do we produce? What kind of “fruit” do others in our lives produce?

We each have a choice…
