Jesus often spoke symbolically. He once said, “…no good tree bears bad fruit, nor again does a bad tree bear good fruit”.
The tree symbolised you and me, and the fruit, our actions. (Luke 6:43)
Don’t spend time wondering whether you are a “good tree” or a “bad tree”. God made all of us in his own likeness; we have good within, and today we can bear great “fruit”.
Lord Jesus, help me to do as many small acts of “good” today as my energy will allow and, may I do each, with a smile!
