Are you malfunctioning?

And God blessed them [granting them certain authority] and said to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth, and subjugate it [putting it under your power]; and rule over (dominate) the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and every living thing that moves upon the earth – Genesis 1:28 [AMP].

You’ve been blessed and commanded to be fruitful.
Are you being fruitful? Being fruitful doesn’t just mean having children, it means to be productive. Being fruitful is about impact, adding value.

If you’re not adding value, you’re malfunctioning. A clear sign of malfunctioning is poverty. Poverty is a result of no value. Poverty isn’t a lack of resources, it is a lack of productivity.

God will bless you, but you need to make a move.
You’re already blessed with gifts and talents. Ask Him to reveal them to you; then, harness them and put them to use – become productive. As you add value, God will crown your efforts with success.
Stop malfunctioning.

be the salt

Someone shared the post below with me, and as a Christian, I found it thought-provoking. It reminded me that even when the right thing is not popular, do it. You might think you’re not making a difference, but trust me, some people are watching and/or learning and/or changing.

Salt & Light

salt and light

If you were to cook 3 cups of rice, would you add 3 cups of salt to it?

Certainly not!

So, in every preparation of rice, the rice seeds always outnumber the grains of salt, yet a little salt makes a huge difference/impact in the overall outcome.

In the room you’re currently in, look up at the ceiling.
What is the size of the bulb compared to the size of the room? It is probably a ratio of 1:5000.
Yet, darkness flees the entire space once that small bulb is put on.

If I am the salt of the earth and the light of the world, then “little me” has the ability to make big things happen.

Sometimes, because we feel outnumbered or overwhelmed at the sheer magnitude of evil or wrong-doers, we choose powerlessness, and decide to go with the flow, not standing up for what we believe is right.

Little doesn’t mean insignificant.

You are significant. Your presence should make a big difference. Stop waiting to be on the side of the majority. They may be the majority, but they are the trivial majority, and you are the impactful minority.

They are the rice of the world, and you are the salt of the world.
They are the dark room, and you are the bulb, the light of the world.
Make your influence felt!

Remember:

You are the Salt of the earth and Light of the world – Matthew 5:13-14
