A very concise question: How fruitful is your life?

A student once asked the advice of heavyweight boxing champion, Muhammad Ali, regarding what he should do to make something of his life.

"Stay in college, get the knowledge. And stay there until you're through. If they can make penicillin out of moldy bread, they can sure make something out of you."

God wants to make something of you and me. He wants to transform us into the likeness of His Son. Jesus wants us to live productive lives that bring glory to God ...

"You didn't choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name," John 15:16.

Is your life bearing fruit that brings glory to God?
