Luke 6:43 No good tree bears bad fruit, nor again does a bad tree bear good fruit.
My husband understands how important good fruit is to me. Good fruit is important to Jesus too. He understands that the best indicator of the state of our heart is the treasure (or garbage) that comes from our mouths.
The memory of a perfect peach is a treasure of my heart, as are memories and thoughts of precious people and events in my life. Our hearts also hold less tangible treasures, like our attitudes, perspectives, and assessments—about ourselves, others, and all of creation.
MOVING FORWARD: Pack an extra piece of fruit to share with a friend.
