Outflow - Good Tree or Bad Tree?

OUTFLOW out-flow (out-flo) n. 1. the act of flowing out. 2. that which flows out. 3. any outward movement.

Jesus said in Mt.7:17: "...every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit." Is the product of your outflow good fruit or bad fruit? Or worse, are you producing no fruit at all? Jesus is the vine and we are his branches, and the branches are to produce fruit. In Lk. 6:44 Jesus said: "Each tree is recognized by its own fruit. People do not pick figs from thornbushes, or grapes from briers." We are grafted into the Tree of Life, and the fruit of our outflow should be good. So go and bear good fruit!
