The Garden of Life

John 15:1-2 " I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch that does not bear fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be more fruitful."
To cause a tree to be more productive people cut off the branches that are dead or not bearing fruit. Same as a garden, to help the plants in the garden grow people pull out the weeds.
In our lives as Christians there are "weeds" or "bad branches" that come into our lives. These can be alot of different things. They can even be things that on the outside look good. Think about those wild flowers and dandelions that are pretty to look at but deep down are destroying the other plants.
What in your life are the "weeds?" What does God need to pull out or cut off of your life? Pray for Him to reveal these things to you and to give you strength because weeds have strong roots. Allow Him that access into your life to take those things away so the good fruit and plants can grow and flourish!
