Wednesday, November 2, 2011 - Job 23, 24; Mark 11, 12

S - Mark 11:13 Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to find out if it had any fruit.  When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves, because it was not the season for figs.

O - The time of year was before the fig fruiting season, but Jesus still expected something from the tree.

A - Jesus expected to see evidence that the tree would bear fruit.  Fig trees that will bear fruit later in the season develop a crop of small edible knobs (taqsh) that will later drop off.   Obviously, there were no taqsh on this tree.  Jesus cursed the tree because it wasn't even working toward bearing fruit.  Folks, even if there is no outward manifestation of godly fruit in our lives, Jesus expects us to be working toward bearing fruit.

P - Lord, help me to always be preparing to bear fruit for You, in Jesus' name I pray.
