Matthew 7:15-20New Living Translation (NLT)
The Tree and Its Fruit
15 “Beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves. 16 You can identify them by their fruit, that is, by the way they act. Can you pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? 17 A good tree produces good fruit, and a bad tree produces bad fruit. 18 A good tree can’t produce bad fruit, and a bad tree can’t produce good fruit. 19 So every tree that does not produce good fruit is chopped down and thrown into the fire. 20 Yes, just as you can identify a tree by its fruit, so you can identify people by their actions.
There’s someone is some people in all of our lives who love to talk but they’re actions are different from their words. It comes in different forms. For instance, they will tell you about someone and later on you will see them talking to this person like they’re best friends. News flash! They’re probably talking about you! Beware of the people who always talk and rarely listen. They’re tounge is the biggest spoon to stir up trouble.
Actions really do speak louder than words. Forget what people say. Watch what they do. Be blessed today
