Which is the best apple tree in the garden?

(Charles Spurgeon)

HTML clipboard Ask the gardener which is the best apple tree in the garden — and he will tell you that it is not the one which has the best shape, but the one which yields the most fruit!

In the same way, he is not the best Christian who occupies the highest position, or who talks the most about divine things — but it is he whose life is most fruitful in good works to the glory of God!

"By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit — so you will be My disciples." John 15:8

"He is like a tree planted beside streams of water that bears its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither." Psalm 1:3
