H.G. Wells (1866-1946) was a prolific English writer of dozens of novels and short stories. Wells wrote an essay on a tribe of people he called the “Goodness Sakers”. 

These were the folks who when they saw something that needed to be done, or when they saw a social evil, or detected some moral shortcoming, they would stand around and wring their hands and say, “For goodness sakes, why doesn’t someone do something about this?”

I know a lot of “goodness-sakers”. They’re always saying “for goodness sake, something ought to be done.” But they never get around to sharing in the doing of it. 

In Jesus’ Parable of the Barren Fig Tree (Luke 13:6-9), the owner of the vineyard gives the unfruitful fig tree another year. If it does not bear fruit, “you can cut it down,” Jesus says. 

God is waiting…..patiently waiting for YOU and ME to bear fruit.  How are YOU doing with bearing fruit in YOUR life?

SOMETIMES GOD WILL PUT A GOLIATH IN YOUR LIFE, SO THAT YOU WILL FIND THE DAVID WITHIN YOU!
