“Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for a tree is known by its fruit.” Matthew 12:33
When we go to the market, we worry about carefully choosing what we are going to buy; avoiding what is rotten or does not have good appearance. We choose what looks fine and is good. So, we avoid any damage from it, while we see not to waste our money in useless things.
The same thing happens when we are going to sow. We inquire into the kind of fruit the tree bears, and, if we receive good information, we go on and sow the seed. Otherwise, we desist from doing it, for no one would sow the fruits from such tree knowing that they are not good.
So must our life be. We should be very careful about what we do, for a bad action is a bad seed which remains sown in the hearts of others. That is why our heart must be apart from any contamination, for our thoughts to be as pure as those of God. These are the result of change and a genuine transformation, which cause us to always be willing to give the best.
Let us turn away from what is bad, unproductive and harmful, which can affect our seed. Let us surround ourselves with everything good, pleasing and perfect, which is his will. This way, anything we raise for the next generations will be known for its good fruits.
