Want to be made rich?

Proverbs 13:4:  “The soul of a lazy man desires, and has nothing; but the soul of the diligent shall be made rich.” 

Rich:  having abundant nutrients; having abundant possessions; pure or nearly pure

When we are diligent in our walk with Christ…reading the Word, choosing to love our neighbors as ourselves, praying, seeking His face, abiding in Him…our souls will be made rich.  We will have abundant nutrients for the fruit that He will bear through us.  We will have abundant treasures (substance, good character, integrity, a faithful witness, love and all the fruit of the spirit).  We will build up treasures in heaven, as well.  We will be pure or nearly pure, through the blood of Jesus that washes us. 🙂

Thank You, Lord, for this promise!  Let me never be lazy again, leaving my soul with nothing.  Let my soul be rich and pouring over in You.  Oh, Lord, let my riches pour out on others around me, that they may know the love of Jesus and be brought into salvation with me!

Diligently,

jamie
