Proverbs 21:21 – ‘He who pursues righteousness and love finds life, prosperity and honour.’
The idea of finding life, prosperity and honour appeal to me, I don’t know about you! It says in the bible that the person who pursues righteousness and love finds these exact things. Now the word pursue can mean to chase or to follow, but it can also mean to practice, to engage in and to work at. Pursuing righteousness and love is something you have to actively do, I believe.
Life, Prosperity and Honour
As you actively work to live a righteous life, God will bless you for it. When you actively work to love others, God will reward you with some great things! It makes sense that if you live your life in this positive way, God will provide you with many years to continue doing so – you will find life. Likewise, He will help you to prosper. That is, to have wealth, affluence, riches and/or success. The prosperous life is a great one, indeed!
Because of your life of integrity, you will also be honoured. There are so many blessings that God promises to those who will live life well for Him. The more we do for Him to reach and bless others, the more He will bless us. It’s a wonderful cycle.
Choose to live a life that is consumed by love and righteousness. When you do this, it is a promise from God that you will find life, prosperity and honour.
Financial tip – don’t shy away from second hand. Many things you need don’t have to be brand new. You can save a lot of money if you’re willing to purchase something previously loved by another: a fridge, car, lounge suite, etc.
