"The fig tree"

     Do you find yourself in this story?  If so, where?
     Are you the fig tree, which does not bear fruit?
     Are you the owner who looks for the fruit on the tree, but does not find any and tells his gardener to cut it down?
     Are you that gardener, who asks to let the tree alone and promises to take care of it?
     Where do you find yourself in that story?

Fr. M.M.
