Genesis 15:1-12, 17-18
Responsorail Psalm: 105:1-2, 3-4, 6-7, 8-9
Gospel: Matthew 7:15-20
"By their fruits shall you know them!" is the theme of today's gospel. Perhaps we should turn the focus away from those outside of us and look more at our inner feelings and emotions. What is the fruit of fear, jealousy, resentment, hatred, anger? Are these good emotions and feelings to carry around with us? Do they produce contentment and happiness in our heart? It is easy to look at others and see how they produce "bad fruit." But what about the fruit we produce? Do we help others in life, does we give good witness? Let's use this gospel to help us lookat our own fruit, inner and outer!
