This week we have studied the fig tree and Jesus' miracle of destruction that caused it to not bear fruit again.
On this first day of 2016 I am also incredibly thankful for this other fig tree parable in God's Word!
“And he told this parable: “A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it and found none. And he said to the vinedresser, ‘Look, for three years now I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and I find none. Cut it down. Why should it use up the ground?’ And he answered him, ‘Sir, let it alone this year also, until I dig around it and put on manure. Then if it should bear fruit next year, well and good; but if not, you can cut it down.’””
Luke 13:6-9 ESV
May this New Year be the beginning of a harvest of spiritual fruit in our lives!
