Do you care to share in the wealth God has blessed you with then I've got a question for you today: ‘Why do most people only bear fruit in one direction?’
There are many reasons for that, but the most probable reason for that is we carry fruit in the direction of the source of sun ☀️. The sun remains the most important resource or ingredient for a plant, tree and humankind‘s survival. No sun no life. No Son, no life.
I want to encourage you today to not bear fruit only in certain directions. Carry fruit In all seasons and for all people. People is Gods business. People is God’s pride and joy. Our success relates to God feeling happy about that. God rejoices in our success. God is happy when looking at us. 'I will rejoice over them to do them good and will faithfully plant them in this land with all My heart and with all My soul. ' (NASB: Jeremiah 32:41)
He made a promise and God will keep His promises. I'm excited to know that God is infinitely happy and nothing can rob God of His joy, because He is infinitely glorious. John Piper said in the pleasures of God "It is good news that God is gloriously happy. No one would want to spend eternity with an unhappy God. If God is unhappy then the goal of the gospel is not a happy goal, and that means it would be no gospel at all. But, in fact, Jesus invites us to spend eternity with a happy God when he says, ‘Enter into the joy of your master' (Matthew 25:23). Jesus lived and died that his joy-God's joy-might be in us and our joy might be full (John 15:11; 17:13). Therefore the gospel is ‘the gospel of the glory of the happy God.'"
If you bear only fruits in certain areas or certain directions it means that only some people will see the joy we have and the source of our strength. The Israelites knew it and so should we know it. God remains the source of our strength. He said it and I believe it. 'The Lord is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation; This is my God, and I will praise Him; My father’s God, and I will extol Him. ' (NASB: Exodus 15:2)
We often become biased in the fruit sharing and caring only for those who water us with care and love. It's so easy to fall into the trap of glorified bribery. We care for those who did something for us or we hope they will do something for us in return. Jesus did everything for nothing. He did it because He cared and He loved though many times He wasn't loved. When you only bless those who can bless you you have missed the point and you have missed what the Lord wants to show you in the Parabel of the Samaritan. The Samaritan cared for someone he didn't know. He paid for the inn and bed rest for the wounded and he knew he wouldn't get that money back. He got nothing back, but still, he did it. He committed even though there wasn't any return. I know of many people who would commit in a flash if there's was a good return on their investment. They would do their best to be sure their investment is as strong as it can be. Will you see your fruit as a blessing to others around you and not only share it in one direction? Will you join me as we seek ways to help people around us to be nourished and supplemented with a good measure of blessings and wellness? God has given you abundantly to share and care for those around you. My advice to you: Just do it.
