In our reading today, there is a fascinating encounter between Jesus, the Creator of all things, and a fig tree. Jesus, seeing a fig tree in the distance and being hungry, approaches the tree to see if there is any fruit among the leaves. Finding no fruit, Jesus openly curses the tree, as His disciples listened in. The interesting part about fruit is that God speaks to us through Paul the apostle and tells us the fruit of the Spirit, which is not to be confused with the gifts of the Spirit: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.” (GALATIANS 5:22-23). The LORD teaches us about bearing fruit for anyone who is hungry. The Church of the LORD Jesus Christ is like a seed that grows into a tree and bears good fruit. As the Church, we should always be growing the fruit from the Holy Spirit, ready for anyone who is hungry.
