Blessed are all who fear the Lord,
who walk in obedience to Him.
You will eat the fruit of your labor;
blessings and prosperity will be yours.
Fearing the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. It's the place where all of the great things of God start. Being obedient to what He is asking of us is the initiator. But what intrigues me today is the next verse. You will eat the fruit of your labor. Think about that for a moment.
What if the food you were to eat today was to come from what you are doing? What would you be eating? How much would be on your plate? Would you be looking at a feat or a famine?
A blessed life is a direct result of a working life. With so many people feeling the crunch of unemployment we may have to be creative in our approach to labor. There are many kind acts that can be done that cost nothing. These random acts of kindness are part of the obedient life and the life that fears the Lord. Being considerate to each other is the way we move towards the blessing and prosperity of God.
Do you need a job? Sow some kindness. Talk about what you want to do. Go to a place that does those types of things. Fill out some applications. Share a kind word. It's all part of the working process and ALL things WORK together for those that love God!
Be blessed today!
