Jul 22 8.20 Some people present told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate mixed with their sacrifices. Jesus asked, “Do you think because of this they were worse sinners than other Galileans? No! Unless you repent, you will all also perish. Or the eighteen killed, when the tower at Siloam fell on them, were they more guilty than others living in Jerusalem? No! Unless you repent, you too will perish.”

Then Jesus told this parable, “A man came looking for fruit on his fig tree but found none. So he said to the gardener, Look, three years Ive waited for fruit in vain. Cut it down! Why waste the land? The gardener said, “Give it another year while I cultivate and fertilize it, perhaps it will fruit then, if not, cut it.
