Lent, Day 19: Unproductive

Day 19: Unproductive

James Tissot (French, 1836-1902). The Accursed Fig Tree (Le figuier maudit), 1886-1894

Unproductive? Like the fig tree from today’s Gospel reading from Luke 13?

I have had difficulty with this parable for years. For some reason – probably because I am rather dense – the best I can do with it is think of God’s patience with me (and by application, with all of us).

Dear God, thank You for Your patience with me. Help me be as patient with others. Please.
