Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.
Matthew 7:17-18 (NIV)
I like this. It tells me a “tree” should not be judged by how tall or short it is; how thick or thin it is; how straight it is or isn’t; how many leafs or even how much fruit it has, but the quality of the fruit it produces. (See Galatians 5:22-23)
