Bearing Fruit that Will Last

“Do not make decisions based upon the feelings of the moment. Have a firm and persevering acceptance of sacrifices. This is what produces abundant fruit in the souls.” (Jesus) (August 7, 1962)

Today’s Readings: Every tree that does not bear good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire. So by their fruits you will know them.” (Matthew 7)

Prayer Meditations- Lord, You have given us Your Holy Spirit so that we would bear fruit for Your Kingdom, fruit that lasts! (John 15:16). But the truth is we cannot do that at all on our own- as little trees we cannot will that fruit comes forth under our own power. Lord it is so easy to be swayed back and forth by our feelings, we become so double minded and unstable in all of our ways (James 1:8). Lord help us to persevere despite our feelings and accept Your Will, the sacrament of the present moment, in all things- connected to The Vine we will indeed then bear the fruit that lasts!
