Known Fruit

today's reading.
Luke 7:27-38    This is he of whom it is written, "'Behold, I send my messenger before your face, who will prepare your way before you'...

I'm a huge plant grower and gardener so Jesus using the example of a tree and its fruit totally made sense to me. These words from verse 44 were particularly powerful, "For each tree is known by its fruit." They really highlighted the fact that others are watching what we do and how we live as a Christ-follower, and just how much we are identified by our actions.

Jesus is absolutely clear that each of us is known by the fruit we bear. So what is the fruit that you are known for? What uniquely identifies you as a follower of Christ? Tami W.
