Time for the ax?

Friday March 16th, Luke 13: 6 Then he told this parable: “A man had a fig tree, planted in his vineyard, and he went to look for fruit on it, but did not find any. 7 So he said to the man who took care of the vineyard, ‘For three years now I’ve been coming to look for fruit on this fig tree and haven’t found any. Cut it down! Why should it use up the soil?’ What are the good fruits we are to be busy producing? Swords into plowshares? Binding up the broken hearted? Release for the captives? Proclaiming the year of the Lord’s jubilee? Showing kindness, mercy and forgiveness for all? Forgiving? When we want to judge others, remember that our own fruit bearing deserves the ax most the time also. Perhaps learning justice and mercy is a better way to go.
