Scripture: Galatians 6:7
“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.”
I hope for your life to be filled with God’s love and blessing. Now I want to share the grace with each of you through this message titled with “Prosperity in Life.”
In Israel where Jesus was born and did His ministry, we can find the Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea. The water from the Mount Hermon comes down and fills the Sea of Galilee, and then goes downstream through the Jordan River. Through this flow, the Sea of Galilee is always full of vitality and life, and many fish live therein.
On the other hand, when the water enters the Dead Sea located at the end of the Jordan River, the Sea becomes very salty because the water does not flow out of the Dead Sea. It is too salty for any living creature to survive in it. This is the very reason that it is called “Dead Sea.” All that can be seen around the sea are the mud flats.
We can also see how his principle of nature is also applicable to our lives. Like the Dead Sea Many people who seek to fulfill only their own greed seem to live a wealthy life, but finally it is found that he fails to enjoy the wealth for long. On the contrary, the one who is like the Sea of Galilee enjoys sharing good things and being a benefit to others. In that way he can lead a happy and prosperous life while letting others prosper with him.
Just as Galatians 6:7 says, “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.” This is the law of the world and it is the justice of God that you should reap as you sow. When you keep and observe the word of God as His children it is quite natural and in accordance with the justice of God that you should receive blessings.
Abraham is such an example. Because he loved God, he not only obeyed the commands of God without question, but he always treated others with goodness, sought the benefit for others, and enjoyed serving visitors as well. He did this steadfastly throughout his whole life.
That’s why God gave Abraham all kinds of blessings in accordance with His justice including good health, longevity, prosperity of children, and wealth. Abraham’s riches, fame and honor were so great that many kings living next to him gave him tribute. He was called the “friend of God” and he is regarded as the ‘Father of Faith’.
Therefore, may each of you receive amazing blessings like Abraham in both spirit and flesh by loving God and your neighbors as yourself, lead a prosperous life and glorify God, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ I pray!
