What excesses do you carry around

Friday May 17th, John 15: 1"I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. 2He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. I need to lose 40 pounds. Step one is to admit that I am fat. There are other things about myself that would be best if they were changed also, I will not mention them here. We are always in the process of pruning, cutting this back, encouraging growth here, discouraging this from taking over our self. We get that. All too often when we read these texts however we think the pruning is cutting out the other person, rather than the God guided refining of the self. Perhaps that is what we most need pruned.
