The fruit of prosperity
Israel is a luxuriant vine
whose fruit matches its growth.
The more abundant his fruit,
the more altars he built;
The more productive his land,
the more sacred pillars he set up.
Their heart is false,
now they pay for their guilt...
What do we do with the blessings God gives us?
Do we squander the fruits of God’s blessings on the paganism of this age: consumerism, hedonism, or worse?
"Sow for yourselves justice,
reap the fruit of piety;
break up for yourselves a new field,
for it is time to seek the LORD..."
