Fig trees

Luke 21:29-36 a retelling

Look at the signs of the changing seasons.
You recognize by the leaf and blossom
 what is coming: snow, fallen leaves, budding trees, full bloom of summer.
It is the same for the Kingdom of God.
Do not be consumed with the worries and cares
 of this world or its coming will catch you unexpectedly.
Watch, keep your eyes open to the things of heaven.
Be alert and keep the faith. Watch!
