|Luke 6:43-45 |
43 For a good tree does not bring forth corrupt fruit; neither does a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. ["Either make the tree good, and its fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and its fruit corrupt; for the tree is known by its fruit." Mat 12:33. From the Word of the Lord within: "A tree that is holy is a good one."]
44 For every tree is known by its own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorn bushes, nor do men gather grapes from a bramble bush.
45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth that which is evil. For out of the overflow of the heart his mouth speaks.
