c. Teach the Lesson (15 minutes)
Look what I have... some of our Super Fruits Mangoes, Pomegranate, Guava , Papaya and Bananas. Yum! Yum! I think I'll have a delicious snack right now.

Do you know what I think would be great? I think it would be great to have a lot a fruit trees in your yard so that any time you wanted a snack, you could just go out and pick a piece of fruit off of the tree. But what if you had an fruit tree in your yard that never had any fruit on it? It wouldn't be good for anything except shade, would it?

In our Bible lesson today, Jesus told a story about a man who planted a fig tree in his garden.

Jezus legde hun dit uit met een verhaal: "Er was iemand die in zijn wijngaard een vijgenboom had geplant. Op een dag ging hij kijken of er al vijgen aan zaten. Maar hij vond niets." (Lukas 13:6)

After some time had passed, he went to look for some fruit on the tree, but there was none. Year after year he watched the tree, but the tree never produced any fruit.

So he said to the man who took care of the vineyard.

7  Toen zei hij tegen de tuinman: 'Ik kom nu al voor het derde jaar kijken of er vijgen aan deze boom zitten, en ik vind er nooit één. Hak hem nu maar om! Waarom zou hij een stuk grond in beslag nemen als dat helemaal geen nut heeft?' Lukas 13:7

8  De tuinman antwoordde hem: 'Heer, laat hem dit jaar nog staan. Dan zal ik eerst nog eens de grond omspitten en er mest bij doen. 9  Als er dan het volgende jaar vijgen aan zitten, is het goed. Maar als hij dan nóg geen vijgen krijgt, moet u hem maar omhakken.' Lukas 13:8-9

In telling this story, Jesus was really talking about us and about God. God has "planted" us here on this earth and he expects us to produce good fruit in our life.

What kind of fruit does he expect?

When He looks at the way we live our life, he wants to see things like love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, and gentleness. There are times when he is disappointed in what he sees, but he is willing to give us another chance.

What can we do to help us produce the kind of fruit that God expects?
We can sorship regularly, read God's Word, pray, fellowship and witness Those things will help us to live a fruitful life.

Extracts from:

God is the God of the Second Chance:
Story Time:
When Thomas Edison was struggling to perfect the light bulb, it took his team of workers twenty-four hours to put together just one light bulb. When the team was finished with one light bulb, Edison gave it to a young boy to carry upstairs. Step by step the boy carefully climbed the stairs, afraid that he might drop this priceless piece of work. You can probably guess what happened; the poor boy dropped the bulb at the top of the stairs. It took the team twenty-four hours to produce another bulb. Finally, tired and ready for a break, Edison was ready to have the bulb carried upstairs. He gave it to the same young boy who had dropped the first one. Mr. Edison gave the boy a second chance! That's true forgiveness, isn't it?

In our Bible lesson today Jesus tells a story about a man who had a fig tree in his vineyard he became frustrated it was not bearing fruit. “Cut it down! It is just taking up space."

"Leave it alone for one more year," the keeper of the vineyard begged. "I will dig around it and put fertilizer on it. If it has fruit next year, fine. If not, then cut it down."

In this story, the owner of the vineyard is God, the keeper of the vineyard is Jesus, and the tree represents God's children. God has every reason to expect his children to produce good fruit. Sometimes we don't produce that kind of fruit, but we have a loving and forgiving God. God gives us a second chance too and it is important for us to know that we don't have to do it alone. The keeper of the vineyard helped the tree by working the soil and adding fertilizer. When we allow Jesus to work in our lives, he will help us to produce the kind of fruit that God expects.

Extracts from:

Aren't you glad that we have a loving and forgiving God who gives us a second chance? Thank Him.

Heavenly Father, help us live a life that will be pleasing to you. We are thankful that even though we don't always produce the kind of fruit that you desire, you give us a second chance. Help us to allow Jesus to work in our lives so that we will produce the kind of fruit that you want from us.
