“Anyone who has ears had better listen!” See commentary on Matthew 11:5. This is the same Greek phrase. Jesus has just taught the Parable of the Sower (Matthew 13:3-8), which shows that each person has the responsibility before God to do something godly with his life and bring forth fruit. Unfortunately, as the parable shows, many people will never do what it takes to bring forth fruit, but that does not absolve us from the responsibility to do so. Each person should heed the words of Jesus and strongly endeavor to bring forth fruit.
