A tree is identified by the kind of fruit it produces. Figs never grow on thornbushes or grapes on bramble bushes.
A good person produces good deeds from a good heart, and an evil person produces evil deeds from an evil heart. Whatever is in your heart determines what you say."
"So why do you call me 'Lord,' when you won't obey me?
I will show you what it's like when someone comes to me, listens to my teaching, and then obeys me.
It is like a person who builds a house on a strong foundation laid upon the underlying rock. When the floodwaters rise and break against the house, it stands firm because it is well built.
But anyone who listens and doesn't obey is like a person who builds a house without a foundation. When the floods sweep down against that house, it will crumble into a heap of ruins."
