If we knew beyond A shadow of a doubt that we could invest 10x our money, we would have no problem finding some cash to invest. It would be a no brainer.
As you look back on 2017, have you thought where you spent time that generated a 10X return on your joy, your impact, or your peace? It is easy for us to get into a rut of living reactive lives that are so "BUSY" and filled with the things other people think we should do. This is not sustainable and will rob us of the life God promises.
Psalm 1:3 states, "He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers."
The prospering of the tree begins with where it is planted. If it is planted by the source of life, it produces good fruit. We are not much different than that tree. If we root our lives in the Living God, it will produce good fruit...it will produce LIFE. *Side note: prospering does not always mean financial prosperity, but if we live with purpose, the joy we receive is better than anything money can buy.*
