Remember what happened to the fig tree that only
branches and leaves, but no fruit, how it dried up
immediately at the Word of the Lord?
A tree with many branches and leaves, but no fruit,
is like a man with lots of worldly knowledges- well
educated- but without the fruits of goodness, and love.
Don't spend your life in endless pursuit of knowledges,
doctrines, concepts, or education. You already know what God wants you to do. He wants you
to bear the fruits of the Spirit. To be like the good samaritan. To love others, and be
kind, giving, forgiving, compassionate, unselfish, praying, and helping others.
So start doing good. Look around you at all the problems and needs, and start doing your
part to help.
But let Jesus work through you, for by ourselves, we can bear no fruit, we must be
attached to the vine (Jesus). Jesus is actually bearing fruit through us, we are just
The time to do good is now!
Don't think that endless education is your salvation or
happiness. The Pharisees were educated.
Even the uneducated are saved and happy, as they obey the Lord.
