Nurture Your Fig Tree

Reflect on the parable of the fig tree in (Luke 13:6-9) .

Place yourself in the position of the keeper of the vineyard.

  • The fig tree is a person or ministry under your care.
  • Consider the Lord as the “certain man” who is pointing out the fig tree’s lack of productivity.
  • To what lengths will you go to nurture that person or ministry to encourage the result that God seeks?

    Yes, doing all you “humanly can” to encourage them seems to be what He desires. We can’t “make” anyone grow, but we can surely pile on the encouragement, set a good example ourselves, and point out when they seem to be moving outside God’s plan. In my opinion, your fig trees are blessed to have you in their lives.

    I will go to great lengths… doing all I humanly can to encourage God’s intended growth in that person, situation, or place. If He has placed it in my care, I will feel responsible for its lack of productivity.
