Bible Commentary for Matthew 12:35

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 12:35


12:33 Either make the tree good and its fruit good: or make the tree corrupt and its fruit corrupt - That is, you must allow, they are both good, or both bad. - For if the fruit is good, so is the tree; if the fruit is evil, so is the tree also. For the tree is known by its fruit - As if he had said, Ye may therefore know me by my fruits. By my converting sinners to God, you may know that God hath sent me. #Mt 7:16|; Luke 6:43.

12:34 In another kind likewise, the tree is known by its fruit - Namely, the heart by the conversation.

12:36 Ye may perhaps think, God does not so much regard your words. But I say to you - That not for blasphemous and profane words only, but for every idle word which men shall speak - For want of seriousness or caution; for every discourse which is not conducive to the glory of God, they shall give account in the day of judgment.

12:37 For by thy words (as well as thy tempers and works) thou shalt then be either acquitted or condemned. Your words as well as actions shall he produced in evidence for or against you, to prove whether you was a true believer or not. And according to that evidence you will either be acquitted or condemned in the great day.

    You can speak things into exists. If you speak of "good" Good will come to you and those that hear it. Speaking evil words will always bring evil. You are the master of your own happiness.
  • Linda on Matthew 12:35
    what ever you have stored up or held on to in your heart is what is going to come out of you whether it be good or bad in word or deed. You need to love so that love will be in your heart and come out of you. God bless you.
