My Gospel Reflections for May 9 Wednesday of the Fifth Week of Easter John 15:1-8


My Reflections:
Oftentimes pruning is very painful take for example  if you bring a kid to the barbershop he would more often than not refuse it.  Most especially when he sees the big scissor being handled by the barber. That is why you have to cajole him that everything would be ok and he need not be afraid.

We oftentimes go thru sessions of pruning which is sometimes painful and God does this to us not to punish us. He does this to make us grow in faith, to let us know that it is only through the test of fire that we would fully blossom to become more mature and fruitful followers.

Let us embrace our trials with faith, let us fully trust Jesus He wants us to bear more fruit that is why He is pruning us.

Do you have a trial right now? Embrace it with faith.
