Advent Word, Day 23 ‘prune’

Day 23 #prune #修剪 Tuesday December 20

‘We prune to let go of growth, letting die what is alive but not growing in the best direction. We prune to let go of death, letting go what is dead but still taking up space. Pruning is a form of dying in order for the tree to more fully live and bear more fruit’.

為了樹木長得好,我們修枝剪葉,將那生長茂密,卻四處亂竄的枝椏砍下,拋棄。為了拋開死亡,我們進行修剪,將那已枯萎,卻還佔據空間的枝葉砍下,丟開。原來「修剪」本身也是一種死亡形式,目的是,教植物長得更美好,開花結果,越發豐盛。
