The Unfruitful Tree. Peter: Hey, look guys. All the trees have fruits in them except this one .Any of you know the reason? Margret: Shall we ask Father? Joseph: Nice idea. Father: In Palestine, fruit trees were often planted in vineyards. Three years had to pass before the fruit of the fig tree would become fit for picking and use. The fig tree in the parable did not bear fruit after the three year period. So here goes the parable; Father: A certain man had a fig-tree planted in his vineyard. After three years, he came and looked for fruit but he did not find any. Then he called to the gardener, who attended to his vineyard. Man: See these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig-tree, and find none. Cut it down. Why does it encumber the ground? Gardener: Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it and manure it. And if it bear fruit, then it is well; but if not, then after that, you shall cut it down. Father: Now the question? Tell me kids what you understand? Margret: Only when you manure the trees will bear fruit. Peter: Even if we manure the trees should take the manure and utilize it. Stephen: Likewise God will provide us everything we want. It is our will to use or not use them and then become a good so and daughters of god. Father: Exactly my kids. This is what is the essence of this story. You kids are great. Ha...ha...ha Stephen: Where's my gift Father? Father: Hey, sorry man. Here it is... take them... FJ: The parable of the unfruitful fig tree reveals a fundamental biblical principle: God expects all men to bear spiritual fruit. He holds them accountable. He has invested resources in them. We call these resources God's grace. He expects a positive return. But a man cannot provide this on his own. He is inherently unfruitful. For him to bear fruit, he needs additional grace. The gardener supplies this. Jesus Christ offers care and feeding for unfruitful fig trees. He volunteers to do this on behalf of both the owner and the trees. That is, Christ's mercy is a gift to God by way of the presently unfruitful trees. The vineyard is kingdom of God. The owner is God. He expects a positive rate of return. Only Christ can provide this. Only through Christ can any tree become fruitful in God's eyes. The owner of the fig tree is God, the Father who orders the tree to be cut down. The dresser of the fig tree is Jesus who asks for one more year for the tree. This extra year would allow special cultivation to take place with the hope that we would respond. Father: Now, off you go I'm going to the fields... Hmm ....does anyone want to accompany me? Kids: Yes... Yes. We want we want want... Father: Ok... Hmmm... Ok, lets go.
