Bible: Luke 21:29-36

The Parable of the Fig Tree

21:29 Then 1  he told them a parable: “Look at the fig tree and all the other trees. 2  21:30 When they sprout leaves, you see 3  for yourselves and know that summer is now near. 21:31 So also you, when you see these things happening, know 4  that the kingdom of God 5  is near. 21:32 I tell you the truth, 6  this generation 7  will not pass away until all these things take place. 21:33 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. 8 

Be Ready!

21:34But be on your guard 9  so that your hearts are not weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of this life, and that day close down upon you suddenly like a trap. 10  21:35 For 11  it will overtake 12  all who live on the face of the whole earth. 13  21:36 But stay alert at all times, 14  praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that must 15  happen, and to stand before the Son of Man.”
