Purning by Gary Bertnick 

Another cup of goodness poured outAs heavy weights made lighter

Branches that drink energy without bearing fruit

Are cut off!

What is practical and useful in meaning

What is committed in Truth to efficiency

Focused on the goals of the Holy Spirit

Clearly designed for this present purpose,

Fully engaged in what honestly works

In step, led easily in mature growth

Ready to carry a good load

Ready to bear lasting good fruit,

These stand favored, secure

Blessed from above in harvest

Blessed with new vibrant strength

New Kingdom qualities

Honor with power displayed

Everything working together as one

Character streamlined, efficient for ripened goodness

All majestic character qualities lifted very high above the world

In this chosen fruit, this abundance promised!
