PRUNING: The allowing of a wrong attitude, idea, or expression to grow to manifestation so it can be seen by the Husbandman and then severed from you so that your purpose is not thwarted by an illegal expression of kingdom ideas.
Formulated this definition this afternoon after receiving this quote:
“When the disciples came back thinking they were more significant than others. What did Jesus do? He says that branch grew right where I can see it. That one has got to be pruned. He doesn’t kill the plant. He prunes the illegal expression of kingdom ideas. And there is not a person around that won’t have a wrong expression of a good idea that God has given you” Bill Johnson
