好树坏树 [Good Tree and Bad Tree]

书卷:马太福音(新约)
作者:马太

马太福音7章17节:“这样,凡好树都结好果子;惟独坏树结坏果子。”
马太福音7章18节:“好树不能结坏果子,坏树不能结好果子。”

今日默想:什么样的生命,就有什么样的工作表现和成果。追求属灵的事,须慎选带领的人。我们若跟错了带领的人,跟随了假先知,将来必受亏损。这两种树果是指我们里面的生命。我们的问题不在于外面所作的是好事或坏事,问题乃在于我们凭哪一种生命去作。我们若是凭着基督的生命去作,就结出好果子来;我们若是凭着自己天然的生命去作,即使是作好事,也必结出坏果子来。外面的现象虽然可以假冒,但是生命却是假冒不来的。神圣的生命必然会领人注意上帝自己,爱慕天上的事物;天然的生命则叫人注意人自己,并顾念地上的事物。

Book: Matthew (New Testament)
Author: Matthew

Matthew 7:17 :“Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.”

Today’s Meditation: Our working performance and output depends on our life. We need to choose the right leader when pursuing spiritual matters so as not to follow a false prophet. These two trees refer to our inner life. Our problem is not at whether we do the right or bad things on the outside, but which kind of life we use to do these things. If we do these things based on the life of Christ, we will bear good fruit. If we do these things based on the natural life, we will bear bad fruit even if it is a good thing. We may be able to fake our outer self, but we cannot fake our inner self. Holy life will attract the attention of people to God Himself. Natural life will only bring attention to ourselves.
