“We recognise a tree by its fruit
and we ought to be able to recognise
a Christian by his action.
The fruit of faith should be evident in our lives,
for being a Christian is more than making
sound professions of faith.
It should reveal itself in practical and visible ways.
Indeed it is better to keep quiet about our beliefs
and live them out,
than to talk eloquently about what we believe
but fail to live by it.”we-recognise-a-tree-by-its-fruit-st-ignatius-of-antioch-speaking-of-living-the-light-no-2-24-sept-2018.jpg
