Like a garden, your life might be full of plants, growing all over the place. Some of these you want to keep; others have to go. They may be good in themselves, or were good in the past, but are no longer good for you. They are in fact stopping you now from thriving and growing, dissipating your energy, preventing you from realizing your vision. Name them. Then, with clippers in hand, ask for the courage to prune, ruthlessly, that you may bear much fruit, to God’s glory.
