fast growth

Fast growth is not healthy.
It’s a deception.
This is one of the reasons for the global financial mess.
The illusion of easy, fast productivity followed by
personal prosperity is a trap.
“Do not overwork to be rich;
Because of your own understanding, cease!
Will you set your eyes on that which is not?
For riches certainly make themselves wings;
They fly away like an eagle toward heaven.”
Proverbs 23:4-5
Jesus spoke about fruit that will last in John 15:16
Yes, it’s strongly connected with endurance,
patience, waiting and trusting.
There is a promise in Galatians 6:9 that we shall reap
if we don’t grow weary in well doing.
Maybe we will see the results of our right choices
in a couple of days, maybe in thirty years
or maybe only in heaven.
I cannot think of a better place than heaven for reaping.
