A second chance to try again

Most times those who are in authority are inflexible and they govern and rule with impunity. They are very quick to cut down and tear apart especially when plans do not go their way. They probably act in this manner because they are figures of authority and cannot be easily challenged by their subordinates.

God, on the other hand, is totally different. The Gospel of Luke 13:9, making reference to the notion of the cutting down of the fig tree offers us a different insight.

He states that: “It may bear fruit next year; if not, then you can cut it down”. It is clear that the chief purpose of God is the salvation of all souls, which is why He sent His only Son, Jesus, to save and redeem all. Thus, God provides us with several chances in life.
