The Fig Tree

Now in the morning, as He returned to the city, He was hungry. And seeing a fig tree by the road, He came to it and found nothing on it but leaves, and said to it, "Let no fruit grow on you ever again." Immediately the fig tree withered away.  Matt 21:18-19

Walk through an apple orchard and look at some of the fruit trees, they'll be full of fruit.  Sweet, juicy fruit!  Exactly the kind of trees that you would expect.  But what if you walked up to an apple tree and there was no fruit?  Not one apple.  Nada. You would wonder, "What is wrong with that tree? Why doesn't it have fruit?"

Our lives as Christians should be like those healthy fruit trees, bearing forth fruit that will be a blessing to those around us. If not, maybe we need to figure out why.

Join us Sunday as we explore the account of the fig tree.
