Matthew 7:11-21 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
11 If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts1 to those who ask him! 12 So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you,2 for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.3

The Narrow and Wide Gates

13 "Enter through the narrow gate.4 For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

A Tree and Its Fruit

15 "Watch out for false prophets.5 They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.6 16 By their fruit you will recognize them.7 Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?8 17 Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.9 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.10 20 Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them. 21 "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,'11 will enter the kingdom of heaven,12 but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.13
