Did you know that, as Christians, we should be praying that Jesus puts us in manure? Really. You may feel like you have enough, well, manure in your life; it’s not so! If we are to be productive in God’s kingdom, we need His manure. Just read Luke 13:6-9:
And he told this parable: “A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it and found none. And he said to the vinedresser, ‘Look, for three years now I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and I find none. Cut it down. Why should it use up the ground?’ And he answered him, ‘Sir, let it alone this year also, until I dig around it and put on manure. Then if it should bear fruit next year, well and good; but if not, you can cut it down.’”
