A TREE IS RECOGNIZED BY ITS FRUIT
Matthew 12:33 “Make a tree good and its fruit will be good, or make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad, for a tree is recognized by its fruit.”
When our pastor’s wife was admitted to the hospital for complications during pregnancy, the women of the church cared for the wife of the pastor in the ward.
Medical facilities at that time and place did not provide food, bath water, or clean clothes for the patients. Relatives had to go to the pharmacies and purchase the medications and then find a nurse to give them.
Those faithful church women stayed with the pastor’s wife day and night for weeks until she delivered a little girl and was able to go home. Then they took turns taking care of her for a month after delivery at home.
Everyone in the hospital knew these ladies were Christians by their good fruit.
