  • A few years ago a television commercial that received a lot of playing time asked the question, “Where’s the beef?” The question in the Gospel of Luke about the barren tree was, “Where’s the fruit?” The owner of the vineyard came looking for three years, but found no fruit.

    The owner in the story represents God. The fig tree could apply to Israel, but there is a personal application where we are the tree. The owner planted, watered, dressed and fertilized the tree. No labor was spared on the tree.
