  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Matthew 7:15-20)
The fruits of dishonesty produce an easy religion which takes the iron out of religion, the cross out of Christianity, and any teaching which gets rid of the firm sayings of Jesus, and which push the judgments of God into the environment and makes us think lightly of sin. What's the examination of a true or false teacher? Jesus attaches soundness with good fruit. Something is sound when it is free from imperfection, decay, or disease and is healthy. Good fruit is the consequence of sound living - living according to ethical truth and upright character. The prophet Isaiah cautioned against the dangers of falsehood: Woe to those who call wickedness good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for dark. How do we avoid dishonesty in our personal lives? By being true - true to God, his word, and his loveliness. And that takes nature! Those who are true to God know that their power lies not in themselves but in God who supplies what we require. The fruit of a disciple is noticeable by faith, hope and love, justice, prudence, strength and restraint.
