This week’s passage continues the discussion about false teachers.
Take a look at the passage in Matthew 7:18-20.
Jesus was a master at creating vivid imagery in his teachings. He has an incredible way of painting a picture with words that is perfectly displayed in the mind’s eye.
This example is no different.
Tagging onto last week’s passage about false teachers and the way that you can recognize them, this example explains just what will happen to those teachers.
Jesus talks about fruit. Just like trees, if we bear good fruit, that’s great. But if we bear bad fruit… Well, bad trees are destroyed.
“Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.”
Are you bearing good fruit, or bad fruit? Let me know in the comments.
