Every good tree bears good fruit

“Just so, every good tree bears good fruit, and a rotten tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a rotten tree bear good fruit.” (MT 7: 17-18)

A “Good tree bears good fruit.” When we look at how the fruits in our marriages look, we naturally think about the level of gentleness and how much we respect each other; are we really free, creative and joyful in being gifts of self, and do we spend a minimum of 15 minutes daily to nourish our relationship, and how deep do we understand ourselves? If I am a good husband, my wife will be happy; if she is not, maybe there is something wrong with my “tree” because “every good tree bears good fruit.”

“Remain in me, as I remain in you, says the Lord; whoever remains in me will bear much fruit.” (Gospel Acclamation)
