Will you still be fruitful in your success?
by Marie Grossett  
5/26/2013 / Christian Living


I'm not talking about material success, rather your attitude. When God opens the door to your 'big break', will you still maintain or strive for the fruit of the Spirit to be manifested in your life?

'But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.' Galatians 5:22

When we first start something it could be a business, book, or a church, we tend to make promises such as 'Lord if you bless me I will never forget you,' or 'I promise I will remain kind humble and loving.'

Then the big break comes and guest what? All those promises seemed to have been long forgotten. We tend to become more money orientated thinking we can treat people anyhow.

In the industry I am in this unfruitful attitude is extremely common. It has become so economically orientated that showing the fruit of the Spirit is non-existent. Though God's name is mentioned in books or mission of statements people actions are speaking louder than words.

I have witnessed authors slandering authors, authors against agents and vice versa. Some publishers focusing more on the selling aspect's of a book rather than the author's potential.

If you want to be in this industry then you would need to pray for your forgiveness levels to increase. There has been many times I had to forgive I refuse to scoop down to the fleshy level but rather be lead by the Spirit. 'For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.' Romans 8:6

Unfortunately a lot of people who has reached their successes in life seem to have forgotten where they have come from and who gave them their success in the first place.

I am determined not to be fleshy in my success and I beseech you brethren that you don't be flesh lead in your success. Pray that God's fruit of his Spirit manifest even more in your life. That you will show people yes you have reached the top but showing love, kindness, meekness etc is more important.

It is so easy to get caught up with worldly things and push God aside. James 4:14 'Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour , that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away'

None of us is promised tomorrow and it is not your position people will remember you by, it is your attitude. Was you still a kind, loving, joyful person in your abundance, or were you slanderous, bitter, rude, and ungrateful.

How would you like to be remembered?
