It may bear fruit in the future

“‘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.” (LK 13: 8-9)

If we really want to achieve a great life, we need to learn how to postpone satisfaction for the future. Our ego wants to achieve satisfaction immediately, but true fighters, people who achieve a lot, can wait for results and satisfaction for a long time. Working hard day after day, making small victories every day, and doing things that nobody wants to do, but should be done, is a matter of maturity.

“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)
