Reflection on Luke 21:29-33 ~
Perhaps from a distance you have been up close and seen the buds on the tree. You may have been lucky enough on your timing to witness one of them burst into leaves. No matter where you are in Jesus’s metaphor of your journey, God is with you. It is your free choice to consume the Word of Christ and begin to personally bloom. From there you can absorb Trinity’s precious sunlight to refresh your entire self, growing in love and joy in the never-ending fruiting of your Heavenly relationship.
Luke 21 New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (NRSVCE)
The Lesson of the Fig Tree
29 Then he told them a parable: “Look at the fig tree and all the trees; 30 as soon as they sprout leaves you can see for yourselves and know that summer is already near. 31 So also, when you see these things taking place, you know that the kingdom of God is near. 32 Truly I tell you, this generation will not pass away until all things have taken place. 33 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.
Thank you for meditating on this Gospel reading and considering this reflection on Luke 21:29-33.
