The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
16 Who preachers are is the main thing, not what they say. A genuine leader will never exploit your emotions or your pocketbook. These diseased trees with their bad apples are going to be chopped down and burned. 16 By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?
