Fruit in the future

October 24, 2015 6:44 am

“‘For three years now I have come in search of fruit on this fig tree but have found none. So cut it down. Why should it exhaust the soil?’ He said to him in reply, ‘Sir, leave it for this year also, and I shall cultivate the ground around it and fertilize it; it may bear fruit in the future. If not you can cut it down.’” (LK 13: 7-9)

This world expects fruits on demand from us. We should be ready to answer to all needs. At the same time, we forget that we need time to grow; we need good ground and all kinds of supplementation. Our Lord is patient, full of respect and always supporting us.

“I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked man, says the Lord, but rather in his conversion that he may live.” (Gospel acclamation)
