Eat the Fruit of Your Labor

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.
Psalm 128:1-2

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 the work you are doing? What would you be eating? How much would be on your plate? Would you be looking at a feast or a famine?
A blessed life is a direct result of a working life. There are many kind acts that can be done that cost nothing. These random acts of kindness are part of the obedient life: a life that fears the Lord. Being considerate of each other is the way we move towards the blessing and prosperity of God.
Whatever you do, do it for the Lord and you will experience the success that He intended for you. Today I am grateful for being able to work. I absolutely love the work I do and the people that I get to do it with. And being paid for it, well that is such a blessing! My plate is full and I am eating some of the best fruit ever!
I am praying for you and the work that you do to produce fruit and bring blessing and prosperity into your life. I want your cup to be filled to overflowing.
Have a blessed, prosperous and safe Labor Day holiday!
