Bible: Luke 3:7-14

3:7 So John 1  said to the crowds 2  that came out to be baptized by him, “You offspring of vipers! 3  Who warned you to flee 4  from the coming wrath? 3:8 Therefore produce 5  fruit 6  that proves your repentance, and don’t begin to say 7  to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ 8  For I tell you that God can raise up children for Abraham from these stones! 9  3:9 Even now the ax is laid at the root of the trees, 10  and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be 11  cut down and thrown into the fire.”

3:10 So 12  the crowds were asking 13  him, “What then should we do? 3:11 John 14  answered them, 15 The person who has two tunics 16  must share with the person who has none, and the person who has food must do likewise.” 3:12 Tax collectors 17  also came to be baptized, and they said to him, “Teacher, what should we do? 3:13 He told them, “Collect no more 18  than you are required to.” 19  3:14 Then some soldiers 20  also asked him, “And as for us – what should we do?” 21  He told them, “Take money from no one by violence 22  or by false accusation, 23  and be content with your pay.”
