"There once was a person who had a fig tree planted in his orchard, and when he came in search of fruit on it but found none, he said to the gardener, 'For three years now I have come in search of fruit on this fig tree but have found none. (So) cut it down. Why should it exhaust the soil?'He said to him in reply, 'Sir, leave it for this year also, and I shall cultivate the ground around it and fertilize it; it may bear fruit in the future. If not you can cut it down'" (Luke 13: 6-9)
Never give up. Always keep working to improve. When we stop giving our best, we become barren like that fig tree.
Lord Jesus, I praise you for always giving me a good example or working hard and never quitting.
Impact Sports: Championships require sacrifice. Am I strong enough to accept this?
Impact Life: Am I determined to be virtuous even when those around me are weak and giving in to vice?
