He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.- Psalm 1:3 (ESV)
As believers, we are expected to be both productive and prosperous. We are to produce fruit and prosper. The same can be said for our endeavors, whether they be business or ministry. God wants us producing fruit and prospering.
Productivity is more than just sheer numbers. You can be productive by serving a small niche and spreading the love of Christ though your service quality. People will see your light. What you produce by providing quality service becomes evidence of your earnest efforts. You produce fruit and become known by your fruit.
Prosperity should not become confused with wealth and riches. That stems from a flawed and narrow view of what God offers us when we are faithful and obedient. We receive countless blessings from God based upon His grace and mercy. Yet, we prosper by growing. We are to grow closer to God and deeper in our faith for starters. As we increasing become more and more blessed, we must increase in our thankfulness and joy for being blessed with even the so-called "little" things.
Psalm 1 provides a pathway to productivity and prosperity. The blessing is reserved for those who delight in the law of the Lord and meditate on it day and night. Those who do not live like the ungodly, scornful and mockers are on the path towards productivity and prosperity. Such a person will not only be fruitful but he or she shall prosper.
Get on the path. Become productive and prosperous day by day, mediating on His Word and staying clear of the wrong path in life.
