Wait a Little Longer

Killingworth: A young'un

I was reading in Luke this morning, and 13:6-9 jumped out at me: the owner was ready to cut the tree down because it hadn’t yielded anything in three years, but the gardener suggested he give it another year.

“The gardener answered, ‘Sir, give it one more chance. Leave it another year, and I’ll give it special attention and plenty of fertilizer. If we get figs next year, fine. If not, then you can cut it down.’”

Thank God He gives us time to mature and get our lives where they should be. Much more time than we deserve! If you are growing weary waiting on your child, your husband or wife, yourself, to get in God’s will, keep on praying. Hang in there. God’s working even when we can’t see.

    I love this verse from the bible! Thank you for sharing it! I’m not sure what direction to go in my current situation but this verse reminds me to just be patient & pray about it. :)

  2. I was just reading this same chapter! I am so glad he hasn’t given up on me and is willing to give me extra time to grow. Makes me wonder about that fertilizer, though. ;)
