 Jesus told them this parable: "There was once a man who had a fig tree

Jesus told them this parable: "There was once a man who had a fig tree growing in his vineyard. He went looking for figs on it but found none. So he said to his gardener, "Look, for three years I have been coming here looking for figs on this fig tree, and I haven't found any. Cut it down! Why should it go on using up the soil?' But the gardener answered, "Leave it alone, sir, just one more year; I will dig around it and put in some fertilizer. Then if the tree bears figs next year, so much the better; if not, then you can have it cut down.' "

Col. 2:6,7

Jesus

waits

for

us,

in

hand,

wheelbarrow by his side,

ready

to

bring us

into 2016.

That’s a promise. Armed with that promise, we can step forward into the New Year ready to let him do the work in us that only he can do. Thanks him for his goodness in giving you, giving us, one more year of grace!
