Theme: Manifested to dominate
Text: Genesis 1:28
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.”
Let me spice your day with this quote from the bread of Journey: A Daybook of Wisdom and Faith, authored by Henri J.M Nouwen.
He said, “There is a great difference between successfulness and fruitfulness. Success comes from strength, control, and respectability. A successful person has the energy to create something, to keep control over its development, and to make it available in large quantities. Success brings many rewards and often fame. Fruits, however, come from weakness and vulnerability. And fruits are unique. A child is a fruit conceived in vulnerability, a community is a fruit born through shared brokenness, and intimacy is the fruit that grows through touching one another’s wounds. Let’s remind one another that what brings us true joy is not successfulness but fruitfulness”.
Life is all about fruitfulness. Identify who you are, whose you are and what you have and live to your maximum potential.
