Sometimes, you realize you have nothing in particular to write about because you’re just… tired. Tired of all the things. You know?
Ever had a prolonged period of time when you had to be strong? Or at least, strong enough? I’m okay, but I’m also there. Sometimes, we just get tired.
I was scrolling through the Holy Week narrative, wondering what to write about today while I was tired of all the things, and then I saw the moment where Jesus also seems to be tired of all the things:
“On the following day, when they came from Bethany, he was hungry. Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to see whether perhaps he would find anything on it. When he came to it, he found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs. He said to it, ‘May no one ever eat fruit from you again.’ And his disciples heard it.”
It wasn’t even the season for figs. But he wanted one, and he was tired.
Glad for this little story today.
