Our job as Christians is not to bother about when the end will be but to live fully in the present moment.

In todays Gospel we hear the parable of the fig tree the last parable that Jesus tells in the Gospel of Luke. When people can see for themselves that these trees have come out in leaf they know for themselves that summer is near, so when they see the Son of Man coming in a cloud they will know that the kingdom is near. Since Luke probably thought that the end would come soon, he has added the last two sayings about what will not pass away until “these things” have taken place. They are “this generation” and the “words” of Jesus.

Our job as Christians is not to bother about when the end will be but to live fully in the present moment. If we do so then no matter when the end comes we will always be ready We need to be faithfully doing God’s will every day of our lives. We need to continue serving others in humility and love and bearing witness to Jesus through the integrity and transparency of our Christian lives.
