LK 21:29-33

In gospel LK 21:29-33 Jesus tells his disciples about the parable of the fig tree. Jesus says that the way we can distinguish what season it is by looking at the natural cycle of trees is the same way we should distinguish when God is near by using “signs”. Jesus tells his disciples that eventually all that is created will pass away, however his words will not. Life is unpredictable and we never know what lies ahead due to changes. Jesus reassures us that even though life is constantly changing we can hold onto the fact that his words will never change.
