To some people, what Jesus did in cursing the fig tree might seem petty and unreasonable. But Jesus did nothing out of spite or malice. Everything he did, he did for a purpose.Jesus was acting out what would happen to Jerusalem, for having the appearance of righteousness, but not its fruits: for rejecting him. Without Jesus, there can be no fruit. Fig trees exist to bear figs. We – you and I – exist to bear fruit. The fig tree was all show and no substance. It was covered in beautiful green leaves, but there were no figs there. You can fool others, but you can’t fool Jesus.Jesus is coming to look for fruit in your life. It’s the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy peace and patience. Will he find it? Or will he just find green leaves?
