The barren fig tree reminds us that fruitfulness matters in the long run. There is no worth to a tree that bears no fruit. Interior conversion leads to fruitfulness of worthy deeds.

May I be open to conversation today. May this change of heart bear fruit in deeds of faithfulness.

O gracious God, I rely on Your Spirit to move my heart today. May Your stirrings in my heart inspire words and deeds that are like Jesus.
