John 15:1--On the other hand...

“Jesus said to his disciples: ‘I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener.’”  John 15:1(CEV)

Let’s think some more about that last phrase.

Think how we feel when a crop does not do as well as we’d like. Not too pleasant is it? We don’t like that, and I bet God does not enjoy it when we fall short of His expectations.

There is a positive side to this though. Just as we work harder to salvage a poorly developing crop, giving it extra attention, God hangs in there with us. See Luke 15.
