work the words into your life

March 4, 2009 jackiebrewster

I have been meditating on Luke 6 for a bit now and I find myself challenged and moved. We so often do what has to or needs to be done but why are we doing it? It is about the why not the deeds done. Who we are is not what we do it’s why we do what we do. A good tree does not produce a rotten apple and a rotten tree does not produce a good apple. When we translate this to our lives we find that the more pollution we allow in our lives the more it begins to destroy our inner man. We begin to tolerate things we once thought had no place in our lives. We begin to compromise our values because we have been worn down by the lies of the enemy. Take a look at your life. What do you watch, listen to, engage in, talk about and act on. Now think about a time in your life that you felt closest to God, would you have done the same things then. I’m not saying we are all far away from God I am just sitting down and evaluating my life along these lines and thought I would share my thoughts with you.

The health of the apple tells the health of the tree. You must begin with your own life-giving lives. It’s who you are, not what you say and do, that counts. Your true being brims over into true words and deeds. What is your life saying?

Luke 6:43-45 message bible
