Entering Upstream

Pruning & Nurturing Devotional Series

Leaves are lungs that inhale carbon dioxide and exhale oxygen.  They return carbon to the soil and produce sugar to nurture fruit.  Pruning dead and excessive foliage allows more sunlight to reach the remaining leaves, who then dedicate their sugar to nurturing fruit rather than more leaves.  I needed to prune worry from my mind in order to use my energy to produce more fruits of the spirit [c.f. Galatians 5:22].
