7 Land that drinks in the rain often falling on it and that produces a crop useful to those for whom it is farmed receives the blessing of God. 8 But land that produces thorns and thistles is worthless and is in danger of being cursed. In the end it will be burned.
Our lives are investments intended to yield immediately. Have you ever wondered why you are still on earth? why so many evils around you but you are speared and still living? We must understand that nothing happens by chance on earth, everything is planned and follows exactly the plan. I must say, you are still living today because there is a purpose you are fulfilling. Most times, many people feel their lives are worthless and have no impact.
My dear, the earth has no room for worthless things; it expels them automatically. So, be rest assured your life counts. However, despite the fact that you are productive, you must ask yourself “what kind of product do I really produce?”. Hebrews 6:7-8 speaks about the life that produces useful crops and the one producing thorns and thistles.
What kind of crop do you produce? We all must be deliberate in contributing positively to the lives of people around us and to the environment at large. Jesus teaches us in Mark 12:30-31 how to be productive. Loving God is the solution to positively influencing lives!
In living a deliberate life your love towards people must be perfect. Perfect love bears no evil against a neighbor
