The Fig Tree: A Lesson in the Patience and Judgment of God

The Fig Tree: A Lesson in the Patience and Judgment of God

Posted
What does a parable about an unproductive fig tree have to do with how you’re going about your life? The answer is—quite a biHe desires

In Christ’s parable of the barren fig tree, the owner was going to have it cut down—a final solution for something unproductive.

The parable of the barren fig tree offers both good news and bad news. The good news is that God is merciful and willing to forgive. The bad news is that even God’s patient mercy has its limits. Neither you nor I want to be on the receiving end when God’s patience runs out. It’s better to repent while we have the opportunity!
Repentance is not a fashionable word today. Its basic meaning is to change. It means to stop doing something that’s not productive or taking you in a wrong direction.
Jesus Christ spoke one of His most interesting parables about a barren fig tree. Here’s what He said: “A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it and found none. Then he said to the keeper of his vineyard, ‘Look, for three years I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree and find none. Cut it down; why does it use up the ground?’ But he answered and said to him, ‘Sir, let it alone this year also, until I dig around it and fertilize it. And if it bears fruit, well. But if not, after that you can cut it down'” (Luke 13:6-9).
Fruit trees require lot of care and proper handling to continue producing luscious fruit year in and year out. It’s rewarding to see a tree bending under the weight of apples, pears, oranges or grapefruit. To go into your backyard and pick your own fruit you watched develop and ripen is both instructive and rewarding.
It’s instructive in that we see how fruit develops on a tree. We see the bloom appear and then the first buds of the fruit begin to grow and develop through the months. Seeing the process teaches more than we learn by going to the market and buying the fruit off the stand. Fruit doesn’t just appear in the grocery store; it’s not grown on a delivery truck. It takes time and care to nurture and develop.
It’s rewarding to take part in the process by which fruit grows. Your efforts combine with the work of nature to bring fruit to harvest.
The harvest of ripened fruit is the reason the tree is taking up valuable real estate. Satisfaction is so important in this process that when there is no fruit you stand looking at the tree trying to understand why it has borne no fruit. I’ve stood looking at barren trees and asked myself the same questions. Before delving further into the parable, we need to look at what Christ was saying before He gave it.

A message about repentance

At the beginning of Luke 13 we see where Christ had been informed about some “Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices” (Luke 13:1). It was an atrocity committed by the Roman ruler of the province upon the Galileans. We’re not told whether there was any provocation. Was it done in retaliation for an attack on the Romans, or was it just done on the whim of the Roman governor as a display of Roman ruthlessness to keep the locals in fear? We don’t know. However, Christ used it to teach a profound lesson, and as He often did, He moved right into a parable to drive home the point.
In Luke 13:2 Jesus responded to the news: “Do you suppose that these Galileans were worse sinners than all other Galileans, because they suffered such things? I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish” (emphasis added throughout).
Time and chance happen to everyone, Solomon once wrote (Ecclesiastes 9:11). We don’t always control the events that can happen to us with the rush of events and everyday life.
Jesus was saying that these poor people were just like everyone else. They were human, with weaknesses and strengths like everyone else. They were going about their daily lives and were suddenly caught up in an event that happened to come their way.
In the next verses Jesus referred to another well-known recent event, the collapse of a building on unsuspecting bystanders: “Or those eighteen on whom the tower of Siloam fell and killed them, do you think that they were worse sinners than all other men who dwell in Jerusalem? I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish” (Luke 13:4-5).
Two stories from everyday life. Two calls to repent, to change the direction of one’s life. In telling them that they could “likewise perish,” Jesus was warning that they could be like those who, unexpectedly caught up in circumstances beyond their control, had their lives snuffed out in an instant.
That’s sobering. We don’t like to think about it, and to be blunt, most of us don’t consider that life is really like this. But it is. There are no guarantees.
Every day we hear news reports of accidents, natural catastrophes and attacks that take innocent lives. People suffer loss of property, lands and rights because of actions taken by others with little thought about what’s right or wrong or just.
The world is often this way, and we need to understand the implications. Jesus was being blunt—realistically blunt—with His audience. Events happen in this world over which you have no control, and sometimes good and well-meaning people—people just like you and me—get hurt. His point was that we understand this and do what we can and should do, realizing that time and chance could unexpectedly strike at any time.

Change and produce

Repentance is not a fashionable word today. You might even need to go to a dictionary to look up the meaning. Its basic meaning is to change. It means to stop doing something that’s not productive or taking you in a wrong direction. It means to stop going in one direction of life, a direction that can be self-destructive, and to turn around and go another—in a way that’s productive and even godly.
Biblically, and as Christ meant it here, it means to stop breaking the law of God and begin to obey God’s law. Christ meant it in the same way He used it when first preaching the gospel of the Kingdom of God as quoted in Mark 1:15: “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.” It means that through this announcement a new order of life is at hand and we need to obtain a mind-set that fits. It means to “bear fruits worthy of repentance” (Matthew 3:8).
Which leads us back to the parable.
An unproductive fig tree in a vineyard is pretty much useless—unless you’re like Nathaniel and want to use it only for shade (John 1:48). And if it hasn’t produced fruit for three years in a row, a remedy needs to be applied. It isn’t that the tree is dead and incapable of producing. The tree hasn’t had the proper care and feeding and is just there, marking time. It’s like a lot of people—alive and breathing, but not really going anywhere.
How about you? Do you understand your life? Can you make sense out of this confusing, sometimes disorderly and uneven existence? Do you know the purpose for your life and what it can become? Forget for a moment the bigger question of “the meaning of life” and just focus on you. What is the purpose for you drawing breathg food and taking up space on this planet?
If you don’t know, or if your answer is pretty weak and unsure, then just consider for a brief moment that this unproductive foftree could be a symbol of your life. You are alive. You have a “place.” But are you producing fruit? Are you living as part of a bigger, overarching purpose?
You can find the answers to these questions. And they can make a positive difference in your life. And God wants you to find the answer!

Extending time to turn things around

The vineyard owner’s solution to this unproductive fig tree was blunt: “Cut it down; why does it use up the ground?” (Luke 13:7).
This is a hard solution, and a final one. It shows us a truth about God. God is full of mercy and compassion. He is patient and loving. But God is also a God of judgment, and Christ is warning here that a time of final judgment will come on a life—especially a life that has had opportunity, warning and the benefit of the doubt. When linked to the earlier statement unless you repent,” we learn that there’s a way to avoid being “cut down” and considered of no value.
Don’t be discouraged! The remainder of the parable shows us the way out!
The keeper of the vineyard answers the own: “Sir, let it alone this year also, the until I dig around it and fertilize it. And if it bears fruit, well. But if not, after that you can cut it down” (Luke 13:8-9).
The keeper asks for one more year in which to work with the tree—to turn it around and make it useful and productive. There are hope and every expectation that the wise and capable attention of the keeper will produce a new burst of productivity so that the next harvest will see fruit on the tree. That is the key thought here.
We can see that God is in a dual role here as both keeper and owner of the vineyard. This shows us that God both owns us and gives us room regrow spiritually, but He also expects us to produce “fruit”—the product of a life of good works of righteousness.
Galatians 5:22-23 defines the kind of fruit God wants to see produced in our lives: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.” The apostle Paul explains here that these qualities are the fruit of God’s Spirit. They are what can be produced by God through our lives when we repent and believe the gospel, surrender ourselves to Him and allow our lives to be led by His Holy Spirit.
This parable of a barren fig tree is meant to teach us a vital truth. R, repentance is necessary, and it is possible with God’s help. He is patient and grants us time to change and bear fruit. Yet at the same time, none of us knows how much time we have left—so we’d better get moving!
God in His judgment is always just, and only He understands the depth of your life. That He is aware and inspecting His “vineyard” to know the condition of each of His trees is a comfort. His desire is that none perish (2 Peter 3:9) but that all produce abundant fruit and inherit eternal life!

Trials of life determine where we stand tomorrow.

If we continue to have faith in God in our dark times and problems, God will guide us to the path out of the problems.

When things begin to get so hard and I’m finding it difficult to stay positive, I just kneel and pray, then hope it gets better. It usually does.

I truly respect those people who stay strong during hard times. Even when they have every reason to break down.

The life you are living now, all the hardships and trials; is just a testimony raising up to be told.

Let the light of faith guide you during the time of hardship and adversity don’t let the fear and negativity affect you.

In my hard times, I always find it difficult to understand God’s love for me. But in the end, I realize how much He has loved me in all those times.

Do not let problems ruin your relationship, hardships are just tests that’ll make your bond stronger.

Every second of every day someone is going through the worst moments of their lives. If today’s just an ordinary day for you, consider that to be a blessing.

Tough times are a blessing in disguise, it always reveals the true color of the people around us.

Sometimes life is hard but the hardship is measured in the mind, so we should not flee the challenges we face. For with the challenges of life, discretion should be used.

Trials of life determine where we stand tomorrow.

Worrying has never solved any problem but with prayers, faith, hope and love, we shall always conquer through hard times.

Never let hard times break you. Be strengthened by the adverse circumstances you are going through and allow yourself to gain from these experiences.

Life can be very hard sometimes and you wonder why, but a little compassion is sometimes all anyone needs to get by.

God needs you to know

You don’t know how God is working in your life right now.

Where did you get that strength to withstand the temptation?

How are you able to keep a good attitude with negative things happening?

How can you still be strong and do the right thing with those challenges you’re up against?

It’s not just your will, your determination.

It is God giving you grass in the desert.

He’s not letting that trouble overwhelm you

He’s not letting that bad break defeat you!

When I Met My Muse –

I glanced at her and took my glasses off they were still singing.

They buzzed like a locust on the coffee table and then ceased.

Her voice belled forth, and the sunlight bent.

I felt the ceiling arch and knew that nails up there took a new grip on whatever they touched.

“I am your way of looking at things,” she said.

“When you allow me to live with you, every glance at the world around you will be a sort of salvation.”

And I took her hand. ~ When I Met My Muse –

Reach for the stars

Advertisements

The rung of a ladder was never meant to rest upon, but only to hold a man’s foot long enough to enable him to put the other somewhat higher.

Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.

Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.

Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.

The history of the world is the history of a few people who had faith in themselves.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.

Anyone can believe for the worst, but it takes a person of faith to believe for the best. Stand strong and set your mind on things above. Be a person of possibility and pave the way for victory! !

Gods unconditional love encourages more unconditional love!

Ace says The Greatest Story Ever Told …Part Two ….Not The Beginning Not The End ….

Advertisements

Hello my Friends, Followers & Readers ….well Christmas is over New Year has arrived and everyone is wondering HOW will this year be better, WHAT will happen and most of all WHEN will it take place ….but there’s more ……….

Lets start with the HOW of ALL things ….firstly ALL things are possible …l grew up believing that, well consider this ….WE JUST DONT KNOW HOW ….Some say sleep on it …..be better in the morning …so is it a belief or does God ANSWER us WHILE we sleep ……but there’s more ………….

I believe God knows the ANSWER to ALL things it’s just WE do NOT ………then WHEN we get the ANSWER we do not UNDERSTAND it ……so lets return to ‘ The TOWER of BABEL ‘ where God CONFUSED language between HIM and US but there’s more ……….

Once language was confused between GOD & OUR OWN UNDERSTANDING ok we could in some cases UNDERSTAND each other but in others we could not …..but spare a thought to WHY some but not EVERYONE then simply WHAT enables that if God CONFUSED language ….So he must enable us to communicate with those that are GOOD but not those that are EVIL ….So we REAP as WE Sow (NO) We SOW as WE Reap ……but there’s more ……..

Just a simple thought ……we have a FREE-WILL to decide RIGHT from WRONG but ALL that really matters is the TRUTH …….Now God is the Truth and he WANTS us to be HAPPY but that can only happen if we have a GOOD life and meet GOOD people and grow to provide GOODNESS & MERCY all the days of our LIFE and LIVE in the ‘ House of the Lord ‘ FOREVER …..but there’s more ………….

So l began with the word HOW ….now what of WHEN well that’s NOW we can do GOOD daily OR we can NOT and lets not forget WHAT does God WANT from US ….he told US in his COMMANDMENTS just boming …….but there’s more …………

So basically we have the ANSWER to Part Two we have already been told and we have the ANSWER to HOW, WHAT & WHEN …so what of the ‘ Beginning & The End ‘ well l put NOT the Beginning NOT the End as with God …there will always be more …….

But NOT UNTIL THE NEXT TIME when there will be more ………..God Bless You ALL and Be Blessed in the Name of the Lord ….Amen ’s

Amen

You are worthy

Advertisements

I no longer have to set myself on fire to keep other people warm.

I am hopelessly in love with a memory. An echo from another time, another place.

You have a place in my heart no one else ever could have.

The moment you feel like you have to prove your worth to someone is the moment you absolutely and utterly have to walk away.

@bestofnatureblog

Never apologize for being sensitive or emotional. Let this be a sign that you’ve got a big heart and aren’t afraid to let others see it. Showing your emotions is a sign of strength.

What’s the worst thing I’ve stolen? Probably little pieces of other people’s lives. Where I’ve either wasted their time or hurt them in some way. That’s the worst thing you can steal, the time of other people. You just can’t get that back.

@acenewsservices

I’m always soft for you, that’s the problem. You could come knocking on my door five years from now and I would open my arms wider and say ‘come here, it’s been too long, it felt like home with you.

Don’t Worry

Advertisements

You don’t have to worry about how the whole this year and the future is going to unfold; you don’t even have to worry about how this week is going to unfold.

You just have to lean into God and keep moving forward in peace, joy, and unconditional love!

Share this with someone you love and be blessed!

The silence of the mind allows you to listen

Are being tested my friend

Every one is a little different to you

That’s ok too

To truly love the Lord Jesus Christ

Remember, the lessons you read about

They were written by men and women

Not the Holy who walked this earth without shoes connected to the universe of the eternal life of God the highest

Before you imitate the Lord Jesus pray for those who God loved before they were born

Pray for all women who endured the labour of pain who bore you before you judge woman

The woman was gifted to give birth not man

Yet men judge women

Many women have perished giving their lives so you may live

The price of a woman who gives birth with dignity in the vision of the Lord dedicates her life to rearing her child until death

You marry a Virgin queen treat her as a goddess and she in return treat you as her King

The purity of the woman is to be held in the highest esteem of the Lord

Amen
