Therefore, every tree that does not bear good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.”    Matthew 3:10  Do you bear good fruit for Christ?  Or, do you spend your time, talent and treasure constantly acquiring more toys, clutter and junk.  Our time, our talent and our treasure are gifts that God has given us.  What we do with them is our gift back to God.  What gifts are you planning to give to the Lord during this upcoming Christmas season?
