“Sir, leave it for this year also, and I shall cultivate the ground around it, and fertilize it; it may best fruit in the future.”
What an important time Lent is, but we can make it wonderful! Our Lord will use this time to cultivate our lives. The goal is to bear fruits of love and peace. The world need us to bear fruit abundantly!
We are already at the third week of Lent, and we have this wonderful reminder of the Parable of the Fig Tree. However, if we do not heed the message the Lord is giving us, it is just a beautiful example of literature.
Be available to be cultivated!
In our prayer we allow ourselves be cultivated and fertilized with the Holy Spirit, and bear fruit to change our world. Jesus wants us to do this, He will always be available to do this, but we must do our part, pray!
