Wednesday of the Fifth Week of Easter -- 22nd May, 2019
Peace be with you.
“..and everyone that he does prunes so that it bears more fruit.” Pruning involves a lot. Cutting away some parts and trimming the hedges. Well, the same analogy applies to us as children of God in Christ. The Father will definitely work on us but sometimes it is not tasteful in our mouth. The pruning may come in many ways: losing certain things and going through some tough times. But know this that the Father does so that the branch may bear more fruit. You may be experiencing certain situations but it is leading you to bear more fruit. God knows best.
