Wednesday of Week 12 Year 2

What sort of fruits are you producing in the eyes of God? Are you producing good fruit? Or have you been neglecting your duties and end up producing bad fruit? Some of us may claim to be preaching the good news, but we do so only with words. Our actions, behaviour, attitude and way of life are a contradiction to what we say. In the eyes of the world, we may appear to be producing good fruit, and our track record may seem show it. But the heart can sometimes be devious and the actions of a person may in actuality and in reality be only for one's personal benefit, gratification, glory.

Today's Gospel warns us "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but underneath are ravenous wolves. By their fruits you will know them." We may be preaching the good news, but the motive on why we do so may not necessarily for the glory of God. Are we guilty of this? We can disguise our intentions, but let us be reminded that God sees all and we may end up being a false prophet.
