Healthy Trees

In Galatians 5:22-23 it says “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.” Jesus says someone who has these traits visible in their life is a healthy person. The good fruits listed above will “grow” when we follow God’s principles in life and are obedient to Him. When you look at your life what kind of fruit do you see?

16b Are grapes gathered from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? 17 So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. 18 A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus you will recognize them by their fruits.

Matthew 7:16b-20
