As you change your life for the better, there are some people you may have to cut off just so that you can reintroduce them (IF you desire) to the NEW you. Some may prefer the old you. That’s their option. You have chosen to put yourself high on your list of priorities. And that’s your option. Like a rose tree, the more you prune the useless, the more beautiful you become.
1 Corinthians 5:17 – New Living Translation
This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!
