My Dad shared this verse with me a few months back. His words were “Honey, there’s a verse that goes with what your saying and it says “you will know them by their fruits.” Always the word. Everything has to be backed up with the word of God, truth, and this is certainly one that took me a while to grasp. But when I did, talk about eye opening…oh dear, to come out of denial right into the open field of truth!And to hear it out of my Daddy’s mouth, knowing that it came first from my Holy Father’s mouth.
I recognize my Dad as the tallest, fruitful tree there is, closest to heaven. I love that I have been able to spend so much time with him in these past few years. Just yesterday before Luke’s musical, he was sitting at my kitchen table, working on his bible study homework. I was rushing through and he said “hey honey, listen to our memory verse for this week…I stopped in my tracks, music to my ears, from my Dad’s voice, the Father’s words.
“Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other.”
