Matthew 11:19b “But wisdom is shown to be right by what results from it.” – Jesus
While here on Earth, Jesus did tons of things that went against the norm: He hung out with the wrong crowd, He worked on Sundays, and He didn’t always agree with the religious leaders. Jesus was certainly doubted and condemned for his method of ministry, but He said in this verse that He would be proved by His fruit. As a leader, I am thankful for this truth. Sometimes only time will tell if a particular decision was wise. When words and explanations won’t do, time will be our defense.
Hopefully, we are mature enough to constantly evaluate our lives, our ministries, and our own spiritual growth to see what fruit we are bearing. What wisdom is shown from your decisions? What fruit are you bearing? What is time revealing about YOU?
