People defined by their actions


February 19, 2009

My Bible reading this week brought me to a verse that I remember because I learned it early in my childhood.

I didn’t understand it as a young child; Mother explained it to me in terms of plant apple seeds and from that come apple trees and then apples and not oranges. The well-known verse is verse is found in Matthew 7:16.

The Contemporary English version puts it this way: “You can tell what they are by what they do. No one picks grapes or figs from thorn bushes.” We know people by their fruit or their actions.

Today I am thinking about this concept of fruit or deeds and the stories of greed that have been coming from Wall Street.
