Wednesday in the Twelfth Week of Ordinary Time
Scripture Readings: Gen 15:1-13, 17-18; Mt. 7:15-20
“By their fruits you will know them” because good trees bear good fruit.
Another lesson we learn from trees is the importance of the way they are leaning, because “As a tree leans so will it fall. “ 1 Qoheleth wars us, “Whether a tree falls to the south or to the north, in the place where the tree falls, there it will lie” (Eccl. 11:3). When it dies, a good tree leaning towards heaven will not fall towards hell. So, “Be careful about the way you are leaning.”
