Watch Out For Fruits

Audio Devotional & Bible Here☞

1 Timothy 5:24-25 (NET) The sins of some people are obvious, going before them into judgment, but for others, they show up later. Similarly good works are also obvious, and the ones that are not cannot remain hidden.

When Fiona moved to her new house in the suburb, most of her neighbors seemed very nice and welcoming. Her next-door neighbor was particularly so nice that Fiona thought within herself that "this woman is too nice to be real".  Fiona was very careful in observing everyone before committing herself to them. She understood that if a person were pretending, they could only pretend for so long.

True to her suspicion,  her next-door neighbor was a very mean and obnoxious person. She wanted, by all means, to be friends with Fiona just to spite the other neighbors who were her enemies. Her obnoxious plans did not work because Fiona lived according to the wisdom of today's Bible verses.

There is wisdom in today's Bible verse that all believers should adopt. Any character that is hidden would show up later. People may be good at pretending, but give it time and their true nature will come out. Before this verse,  Paul had already told Timothy not to lay hands on anyone hastily (see 1 Timothy 5:22). Many believers have gotten into trouble by committing themselves too quickly to people just because they claim to be believers. Do your due diligence in dealing with people. When a person claims to be a believer, watch out for the fruits [of the spirit] before committing yourself to them--be sober and vigilant.

Go into today remembering that you can only truly know people by their fruits(not merely by their claims and bumper stickers), and most times, it takes time for fruits to manifest.
