Finding Life, Prosperity, and Honor

by

He who pursues righteousness and love finds life, prosperity and honor(Pro. 21:21). Humility and the fear of the Lord bring wealth and honor and life (Pro. 22:4).

Life, Prosperity, And Honor

Without any doubt life, prosperity and honor are what we individually need to be fulfilled. Life is a gift to exist both now and the hereafter. The quality of life matters a lot. You might have heard people say, I have no life; I distaste life and similar statements. Prosperity is what defines the quality of life that we have. We need to prosper physically (Health is wealth), emotionally, mentally, spiritually, materially, etc. Lastly, we also need honor which is appreciation and respect. Lack of honor has driven people who are prospering to take their lives.

What is the sure way to obtain quality life, prosperity, and honor?
(1) Pursue righteousness. Do what is good and right. The Bible is the only book that details what is good and right and how we can be righteous. Christ is our righteousness.
(2) Pursue love. God is love and only as we know God we will know what love is. It is more than an emotional attraction. It is eternal, sacrificial, and not self-seeking. If we love God and love our neighbors as ourselves, we will fulfill all righteousness. Love for God means obeying everything He says.
(3) Humility. Be humble. Yield to God and others in all that is right.
(4) Fear of the Lord. Know, respect, and obey the Lord in reverence submission.

In Christ, you find all you need.
