6 Then he told this parable:
“A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard;
and he came looking for fruit on it and found none.
7 So he said to the gardener, “See here!
For three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree,
and still I find none. Cut it down! Why should it be wasting the soil?’
8 He replied, “Sir, let it alone for one more year,
until I dig around it and put manure on it.
9 If it bears fruit next year, well and good;
but if not, you can cut it down.’ ”
“Do I bear the Fruit of God?”
