  Thought For Today -August  1
  Bring Forth Good Fruit!

    We are not to judge one another. No one is qualified to pluck the mote out of his brother's eye while he still has a beam protruding from his own; nevertheless,, we are to be discerning, and we ought to know which fruit comes from which tree. No one is above his master, but we Christians all ought to desire to be as our master, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We ought to abide in him, and in his word even as a branch is attached to the vine so that our fruit might be good fruit.
    "For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes." Luke 6: 43,44.
    In this world of practical things, we ought to be wise as serpents and harmless as doves. We ought not to associate and derive wisdom and counsel from those among us who might be likened unto the thorns and bramble bushes, where we know that we will obtain nothing but sour and poisonous fruit. We ought to first of all seek our fellowship with our blessed Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who is the first fruit of all that is good, and wholesome, and wonderful, and then our earthly associations and sources of wisdom and counsel ought to be with those who are attached to him, and abiding with him as the branch is attached to the vine.
    We can know when we have found the good fruit, for: "A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of the heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh." Luke 6: 45.
