Being Fruitful

Go be fruitful.
I am the source.
I am the vine.
You are the branch.

I chose you not
for what you can do
but rather what
I do through you.

Don’t let guilt for sin
imprison you.
Instead hear what
I want you to do.

Those I love I prune.
In pain you find me.
Like a loving father
disciplines his son.

Be careful My beloved.
Prune only what is dead.
Don’t pull up the grain
when you seek the weeds.

How does God need to prune you?
