Worthy Thought: You can see the character of a person the same way you look at a tree.
Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
“By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.”
Holy Bible (NIV)
