Luke 13 : 6-9. He spake also this parable; a certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground? And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it: And if it bear fruit, well: And if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.

Reading this parable, the warning is clear that the time for us to come to our senses and repent is finite. If we do not obey the two great commandments, repent and seek God's forgiveness for those wrongdoings we continually commit in thought, word and deed then, at our death, instead of  being given eternal life, our tree will be cut down and burnt.

This parable is also an awakening for all.  God has borne long with the sins of humankind and we may hope that he will bear with us for a little longer  but we cannot expect that he will bear always, for a coal that will not burn is not fit for the fire..
