SEEING YOUR LIFE THROUGH THE LENS OF THE GOSPELS ~ John 15:1-8
Read 795 Times
1 In a relationship, connectedness is important. Relationships cannot be taken for granted and need time and care to be life-giving. What does your
experience tell you of the truth of this in your relationships.
• with God
• with your friends
• with your family
• with communities or groups to which you belong?
2. ‘Every branch that bears fruit he prunes to make it bear more fruit.’
In what ways do you see that you have been ‘pruned’ by the experiences of life, or by the word of God, to be a more fruitful person? Perhaps you have also experienced the need for ‘pruning’ in significant relationships in your life.
3. The parable also reminds us that we are not the source of our own life. It is a gift from God, from our parents, and from all who have nourished us. Give thanks for those who have been a source of life for you.
4. God is glorified by our being fruitful. When has human fruitfulness reminded you of God at work in our world?
