1. Jesus murders a tree because it had no fruit for him. Whatta guy.

Matthew 21:18-22 Early in the morning, as Jesus was on his way back to the city, he was hungry. Seeing a fig tree by the road, he went up to it but found nothing on it except leaves. Then he said to it, “May you never bear fruit again!” Immediately the tree withered. When the disciples saw this, they were amazed. “How did the fig tree wither so quickly?” they asked. Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done. If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”

2. In God's time, not yours!

Meanwhile, feeding the flock doesn't mean to deforest lots of fig trees or other types of vegetation that might be involved in other global systems like climate. Even then, Jesus must have known he'd be held to account by the Father who loves us all.
