We are not choppers, but chance givers.
6 And He told this parable: “A man had a fig tree that was planted in his vineyard. He came looking for fruit on it and found none. 7 He told the vineyard worker, ‘Listen, for three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree and haven’t found any. Cut it down! Why should it even waste the soil?’8 “But he replied to him, ‘Sir, leave it this year also, until I dig around it and fertilize it. 9 Perhaps it will bear fruit next year, but if not, you can cut it down.’”
- We Deserve To Be Chopped
- Why should it even waste the soil?
- Have you ever felt the sting of being useless?
- Have you ever had a bad season?
- The Difference Between Chopped And A Chance
- Someone Stepped In

18 There is no other God like you!
You forgive sin
and pardon the rebellion
of those who remain among your people.
You do not remain angry forever,
but delight in showing loyal love.
19 You will once again have mercy on us;
you will conquer our evil deeds;
you will hurl our sins into the depths of the sea.
5 For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive,
And abundant in mercy to all those who call upon You.
