One Year More (Luke 13.1–9)
This sermon, One Year More (Luke 13.1–9) tells about Jesus' interactions with people who assume that only the worst sinners deserve bad things to happen to them. Jesus counters their claims by noting that we are all guilty of sin and require repentance. This is a harsh sentence, but it is balanced by his telling of the Parable of the Fig Tree, which--in Luke--receives "one more year" to provide fruit. Jesus' mercy and judgment are balanced in this same scale and we must all look forward to both God's long-suffering and his eventual action.
