“When [Jesus] came to [the fig tree], he found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs.”
Strangely enough, this is one of my favorite scriptures. Jesus curses a fig tree because it didn’t have any fruit on it he could eat. It sounds a little narcissistic doesn’t it? The fig tree represents the church and you and me as its members. People are looking to be fed. Are we bearing the fruit that will feed them? What fruit of the spirit found in Galatians 5:22-26 are you and our church exhibiting? What new ministry is God calling you to provide to feed those who are hungry for the Word?
