IAM Fruitful

LUKE 6:44-45 NLT A tree is identified by its fruit. Figs are never gathered from thornbushes, and grapes are not picked from bramble bushes.  A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. What you say flows from what is in your heart.

It’s pretty darn simple.  What’s inside of us, is what will come out of us.  If we don’t have love inside, we can’t be loving.  If we have only anger and hatred inside, that’s all we can offer in our relationships.
Good from good, and evil from evil.
You might be able to fake it for a while, but life has a way of turning up the pressure and heat.  The true internal reality will explode at the worst time, and usually all over the people you love!
I love the word that is used here:  Treasury in your heart.
Have you ever heard the phrase trash in trash out?  Well, I believe this verse also makes it clear, trash in, stays in.
So the other must apply:  Great in, great stays, and great grows, and great pours out from you.
Oil and water don’t mix right?
As you continue to put good things into your ears, eyes, mind and heart, the bad stuff will not have room to stay.
They best way to get rid of a bad habit:  Replace it with a good habit.
If all you have ever known is sarcasm, bitterness, hatred and anger, it’s rough.
But you are not ruined forever!
You can choose today to start putting in the good.
You are making that step right now
Make a commitment to read the word everyday
Be around positive happy people as much as possible
and if you really need a pick me up:  Youtube is the place for videos that will brighten your spirit
