Love God and Love Neighbor....but who is my neighbor? Is it only people I like? People in my community? People who are similar to me? 

Loving your neighbor is hard. Loving your enemy is even harder, but that's what Jesus tells us to do. If we can, through the power of The Holy Spirit, love our enemies, then we will have riches greater than gold sweeter than honey. 

What do you need God to prune in your life? Cleaning away the dead and unfruitful vines will allow you to be able to have the ability to say yes to things God is calling you to in yoru life. 

How can something grow without being connected to a source? Jesus references getting rid of the dead growth and pruning the good growth to be more fruitful. It's a long process that takes dedication and time.
