The patience of God super abounds the Judgement of God. The longer a barren tree is left to grow, the greater the mischief it would perpetuate. Therefore it needs to be cut off. But God is so generous to give us a second chance so that we might not only bear fruits of good works but also rend our hearts and come back to God with repentance.
