DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage
Dear Friend in the Lord,
Authentic Living: Are we living the wholesome life of the Gospel? Jesus says, “you will be able to tell them by their fruits.” As such, superficial and superstitious living, and shallow relationships, will never produce the “fruits” of peace and joy in our daily living. Let us pray for the wisdom to be more Christ-like.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Beware of false prophets who come to you disguised as sheep but underneath are ravenous wolves. You will be able to tell them by their fruits. Can people pick grapes from thorns, or figs from thistles?
‘In the same way, a sound tree produces good fruit but a rotten tree bad fruit. A sound tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor a rotten tree bear good fruit. Any tree that does not produce good fruit is cut down and thrown on the fire. I repeat, you will be able to tell them by their fruits.’
