One day, Jesus happened upon a fig tree without fruit. Christ cursed the tree, and it withered, even though Mark’s Gospel tells us that it was not the season for figs. Why would the Lord curse a tree for not producing out-of-season?
Nothing But Leaves is a collection of devotionals about growing and living as a Christian. Inspired by Jesus’ parable about the fig tree, Donnie Bates offers wise, sound advice for maturing in our walk with the Lord, reminding the reader that:
THERE IS NO SEASON IN WHICH WE ARE EXCUSED FROM BEARING GOOD FRUIT.
