God can't stomach lukewarm faith. “Truly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea’, it will happen." (Matthew 21:21) When Jesus denounces the ornamental fig tree, it dries up. He is angered by a religion that puts on a show but ignores the service. (adapted from Max Lucado)

I like this image because I think it shows growth and decay. it shows growth through the use of colour, the pink in the centre of the dead rose can imply hope. However, the texture in this photograph resembles decay, through the wilted petals.
