Look what I have... some of our Super Fruits
Mangoes, Pomegranate, Guava , Papaya and Bananas. Yum! Yum! I think
I'll have a delicious snack right now.
Do you know what I think would be great? I think it would be great
to have a lot a fruit trees in your yard so that any time you wanted
a snack, you could just go out and pick a piece of fruit off of
the tree. But what if you had an fruit tree in your yard that never
had any fruit on it? It wouldn't be good for anything except shade,
In our Bible lesson today, Jesus told a story about a man who planted
a fig tree in his garden. After some time had passed, he went to
look for some fruit on the tree, but there was none. Year after
year he watched the tree, but the tree never produced any fruit.
Finally, the man went to the gardener who took care of the tree
and said to him, "For three years I have been coming to
look for fruit on this fig tree and haven't found any. Cut it down!
It is just taking up space in the garden."
The gardener answered, "Please, sir, give it one more
chance. Leave it for another year. I will give it special attention.
I will dig around the tree and give it plenty of fertilizer. If
the tree produces fruit next year, great, if not, then you can cut
In telling this story, Jesus was really talking about us and about
God. God has "planted" us here on this earth and he expects
us to produce good fruit in our life.
What kind of fruit does he expect?
When He looks at the way we live our life, he wants to see things
like love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, and gentleness. There
are times when he is disappointed in what he sees, but he is willing
to give us another chance.
What can we do to help us produce the kind of fruit that God expects?
We can sorship regularly, read God's Word, pray, fellowship and
witness Those things will help us to live a fruitful life.
God is the God of the Second Chance:
When Thomas Edison was struggling to perfect the light bulb, it
took his team of workers twenty-four hours to put together just
one light bulb. When the team was finished with one light bulb,
Edison gave it to a young boy to carry upstairs. Step by step the
boy carefully climbed the stairs, afraid that he might drop this
priceless piece of work. You can probably guess what happened; the
poor boy dropped the bulb at the top of the stairs. It took the
team twenty-four hours to produce another bulb. Finally, tired and
ready for a break, Edison was ready to have the bulb carried upstairs.
He gave it to the same young boy who had dropped the first one.
Mr. Edison gave the boy a second chance! That's true forgiveness,
In our Bible lesson today Jesus tells a story
about a man who had a fig tree in his vineyard he became frustrated
it was not bearing fruit. “Cut it down! It is just taking
"Leave it alone for one more year,"
the keeper of the vineyard begged. "I will dig around it
and put fertilizer on it. If it has fruit next year, fine. If not,
then cut it down."
In this story, the owner of the vineyard
is God, the keeper of the vineyard is Jesus, and the tree represents
God's children. God has every reason to expect his children to produce
good fruit. Sometimes we don't produce that kind of fruit, but we
have a loving and forgiving God. God gives us a second chance too
and it is important for us to know that we don't have to do it alone.
The keeper of the vineyard helped the tree by working the soil and
adding fertilizer. When we allow Jesus to work in our lives, he
will help us to produce the kind of fruit that God expects.
6. APPLICATION / RENCONTRER DIEU
Aren't you glad that we have a loving and
forgiving God who gives us a second chance? Thank Him.
PRIER DE CLOUTURE: Heavenly
Father, help us live a life that will be pleasing to you. We are
thankful that even though we don't always produce the kind of fruit
that you desire, you give us a second chance. Help us to allow Jesus
to work in our lives so that we will produce the kind of fruit that
you want from us.
