Lk 21:29-33 Sign of the Times

Jesus continues to prepare us for the end. After describing the fall of Jerusalem, the destruction of the Temple and other cosmic signs, he advises his disciples to learn from the fig tree. He invites us to learn from nature and its cycle. These are ordinary signs of the times.

3 Considerations from the Sign of the Times: 3 I’s
1. Intelligence to Understand: its a gift from the Holy Spirit. We ask for the gift of discernment: ability to judge well. Changes happen constantly in our life. These are clues God gives us to do his will.
2. Interpret with Faith: Jesus reminds us that whatever happens to us, just like the cycle of life and death in nature, he has a purpose. God is present in our sad stories and joyful mysteries. We cling to him even in uncertain times.
3. Improve Ourselves: in the ups and downs of life, God is faithful. His promises stay. This challenges us to begin again. There is always room for improvement. There is always a chance to bear fruit. Change is inevitable but always possible. 👍❤️
