Matthew 3:10 ” The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.”

Healthy trees produce lots of fruit, so when they don’t, the orchardist looks deeper.  The trees may look perfect from the outside, but hide disease within.  Their roots may be withered and gnarled from lack of water or fertilizer.  We too can look good on the outside, but be stunted within.   We can act very spiritual in Church, say all the right things at Bible Study, and still be very withered inside. The Lord wants us healthy and productive – inside and out,  for just like strong, hardy trees that produce lots of fruit… so should we.
