Success is like money it can be used for good or evil. It depends on who has it. Success in the hands of an evil man is merely power to abuse others. An evil man has no business with power and success. His heart is not pure so his motives cannot be trusted.
But fruitfulness in the life of a man who loves God and daily desires to please Him is a beautiful thing. Such people leave their mark on the earth for the glory of God. They not only have the welfare and wisdom to enjoy their lives and not waste them but they also have the integrity and goodness of heart to bless their families, friends, neighbors and business associates.
Yes, fruitfulness was God’s idea. You should not be living a less than average life when God has a fruitful plan for you. As we continue this topic you will see God not only desires success for His children He gives clear guidelines on how to achieve Godly success. He also gives clear instruction on how to keep your heart right when you are experiencing success.
Scripture meditation: “You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and I have appointed you [I have planted you], that you might go and bear fruit and keep on bearing fruit.” John 15:16a
