This morning I was enjoying the warmth of the morning sun when I looked over at our fig tree, planted last Spring. Just a few weeks ago, it was just branches and this morning I noticed it was beautifully filled in with leaves. This observation reminded me of Matthew 24.
The Lesson of the Fig Tree.*
32“Learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its branch becomes tender and sprouts leaves, you know that summer is near.
33In the same way, when you see all these things, know that he is near, at the gates.
34Amen, I say to you, this generation* will not pass away until all these things have taken place.
35o Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.
