What Shall We Do

“Therefore every tree which does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.” Luke 3:9  NKJV
“So the people asked him, saying, ‘What shall we do then?’ ” Luke 3:10  NKJV

John gave the people simple , specific , doable ways to respond:  to give to those who don’t have food and clothing if they did have those things. Tax collectors were told not to collect more than appointed them. And soldiers were not to intimidate or falsely accuse and be content with their wages.

Thank You, Lord, for helping us bear good fruits that glorify and honor You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

You will bear fruits
worthy of repentance
as I gather you
unto Me

and each time you ask
“what shall we do”
I’ll answer, “do justly
and love mercy.”

God bless you as you bear the fruit of repentance today!
