Devotions from Judy’s heart

One day when I went for my prayer walk, I saw a tree that was dead and had not one leaf on it. Soon it will either fall down or Al will cut it down. Sometimes it is hard to tell which ones are dead or simply which ones are losing their leaves in the Fall season. However in the summer it is easy to tell for all the live ones have an abundance of leaves. One day we will be known for our leaves (fruit) or lack of it. In Ecc. 12:14 it says, “For God will bring every deed into judgment with every secret thing, whether good or evil.”  One day we will receive rewards for the deeds we have done. What will he find on our trees? Those things that we did to be seen of others will be like leaves fallen to the ground leaving a bare tree. But those things done in His name will be rewarded…even a cup of cold water.  Let us remember that when we sow righteousness we will reap a sure reward. ( Prov 11:18).
