Ephesians 4:7-16; Psalms 122:1-5; Luke 13:1-9

Good fruit

Two reports of horror: one at human hands, a massacre by Pilate’s soldiers of Jewish pilgrims at prayer in the temple; the other by accident, when a tall building in the city collapsed killing many. And those pilgrims were from Galilee, just like Jesus and his followers heading to that same city. People look for reasons – were those unfortunates guilty of something? Jesus denies it. Horrors and death happen. Instead, be ready, repent, bear good fruit. Then our death will not be the end but a passing over into Life.
