Certified So: Redefining Happiness

Summary: The Curse


or even if the Maker

Of the fig tree

Had only found

One little tiny fig

Clinging to its branches,

Do you think

He would have cursed it?


Because it's never been

About how many figs

Are on the tree.Mark 12:41-44

But rather,

It has always been about

The infinite amount

The Lord can make

If He is in the tree,

When the tree

Seeks to feed the needs

Of others first.

And we are

The fig trees,

The planting of the Lord,Isaiah 61:1-3

If our deeds feed

Our neighbors need

For love and understanding.1 Peter 3:8-9

Or if we seek to sow

A seed of patience

In those we deem to be

Impatient or demanding.Galatians 5:13-16


The overwhelming fact

That we feel like

We only have

One little tiny fig

Of happiness

Clinging to our branches.
