Bible story: The barren fig tree
Creative activities based on the Bible story of The barren fig tree
The Parable of the Barren Fig Tree in Luke 13:6-9 is a story told by Jesus about a man who planted a fig tree in his vineyard. After three years, the tree still had not borne any fruit and the owner wanted to cut it down. However, the gardener asked for one more year to tend to the tree and see if it would bear fruit.
This parable teaches us about the importance of bearing fruit in our lives and the need for God's grace and patience. It challenges us to reflect on our own lives and ask if we are bearing the fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
