Look at the fig tree and all the trees. 30 When they sprout leaves, you can see for yourselves and know that summer is near. 31 Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that the kingdom of God is near.
Luke 21: 29-31
I can see it for myself: tender twigs are sprouting with new growth, buds are opening into a kaleidoscope of colors, winter is giving way to spring. This parable predicts the “see for yourself” event at the tomb in just a little for a week —it describes life coming from the still and the dead.
Just keep watch: it is happening before our eyes. You can see for yourself!
May my eyes see, my ears hear, my heart understand. He prepares me with parable.
