I must not be a pastor (ordained or claimed) in order to preach, but I teach according my comprehension; hence, I give room for correction. Enjoy this teaching…
Please, I urge you to read this with exceptional wisdom and understanding, God needs us to grab some lessons this very day.
The Parable Of The Unfruitful Fig Tree [Luke 13:6-9]
[Please read from your Bible, many of us are so lazy to pick up the Bible, to open it and/or to read it].
Extra references for this teaching=> John 15:2; 15:8; 15:16.
For good 3 years, the fig tree yielded no fruit. It’s 3 years that I am talking about here and not 3 days.
An order came that it (the fig tree) may be cut down instead of letting it to be using up the soil but no atom of benefit is gotten from from it at the end.
I hope that an order that you should be brought down has not been given? And even if such order has been given, hope it’s not one which you are truly guilty of?
Search through the corridor of your mind, are you just BEAUTIFUL without being FRUITFUL? Are you just BEAUTIFUL and FRUITFUL but not FAITHFUL?
Most of us are really like the fig tree, whiling away time using statements such as: “God’s time is the best” and “No time is late” to convince and confuse our surreal minds.
You cannot do it until you have done it. So, you must act before you can term it a fact.
Looking at myself, I found out that I am a destined writer, I never waited till the whole world would know that I am good in writing before I started to write.
I have already begun to unleash my skills and dexterities in writing with hope that one day my dreams as a writer will come true and be known to the world.
There is the word “TINY” in the word “DESTINY”: so, your DESTINY requires you to always try your best to unleash that TINY abilities you have right inside you.
Let us go back to the readings from the Bible passage:
And the gardener pleaded humbly that it may be given another year (let’s say another chance); not just that alone, the gardener promised to dig round it and put in some manure (i.e. offering help to the tree in addition).
But he said that the tree would be cut down if it insists not to produce fruits at the end of the extra one year (i.e. the consequence of failing).
We are now given another chance to achieve that which we ought to have achieved in the past but haven’t done so, maybe due to our human decisions.
Begin now to work hard towards achieving your goals, God’s aims for us is to be FRUITFUL, but for us to be FRUITFUL in life, we must be FAITHFUL and we must be TRUTHFUL, and not just being BEAUTIFUL.
Take this one more year of ample supply of manure (i.e. ENERGY and HELP) to achieve something or you face the nemesis of been cut down.
A quote of mine goes thus: “PAST ERRORS IF NOT CORRECTED MAY TURN TO PRESENT TERRORS, AND THE PRESENT TERRORS IF LEFT UNATTENDED TO MAY RESULT TO FUTURE HORRORS!” -NDJP
I know I wrote and shared this with you, but listen, God is trying to drum something motivating into you.
BET ME, YOU CAN NEVER MAKE IT TO THE PEAK OF THE MOUNTAIN OF GREATNESS IF YOU ARE ALWAYS SO WEAK TO BEGIN THE JOURNEY TOWARDS ATTAINING GREATNESS! BEGIN TODAY TO BE FRUITFUL SO THAT YOU WON’T BE CUT DOWN.
