Luke 13: 1-9

The parable of the barren tree reminds us that a tree is known by the fruit it bears.  Bad fruit comes from a bad tree.  No fruit means the tree is barren.  That isn’t to say that a tree can’t grow.  With proper care there is always another season.  When a Christian repeats and believes in the Good News, all starts anew.

Dear Lord, help me to be courageous enough to identify my failings, to repent, and to be hopeful and believe in the next season.
