Do you think you have enough resources to carry out my plan for your life? Do you need more? Could you have too much? Consider my story of the vine and the branches. It teaches you to abide in the vine to bear fruit. It also teaches you that every branch that does bear fruit is pruned in order that it may bear more fruit. Pruning involves the cutting away of a living part. Does this seem like a bad alternative between being cut off and being trimmed? Obviously the first is worst. This doesn’t have to be a dilemma. How much do you value fruit? Are there things in your life you could part with to bear more?
