Only three verses for our reading today, but they are loaded with imagery and things to consider. (To that end, I encourage you if you have a study Bible or a commentary available to do a little extra reading and digging which will provide historical context and a fuller picture with regard to this parable.)
As I read, I chose to focus in on fruit. The vineyard owner is looking for fruit. He's disappointed because he doesn't find any. But when asked, he doesn't cut the fig tree down but allows more time for the tree to bear fruit.
What do these verses reveal about God? What do the show about what God desires from us? Tami
