Luke 13: 6-9 (KJV) “He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground? And he answering said unto him. Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it. And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.”
God tries to give each of us the time we need to repent and obey the gospel. This scripture of the fig tree parable is relaying that message to each of us. God will not wait for ever for man to obey.
We have 4 large fig trees in our yard. You can see by the leaves at that top that we have 2 types of figs. They are quite delicious and make good cookies and are great in smoothies. I blended them in my large chopper and added them to a basic cake batter recipe to make cookies.
