Day Six – הַיוֹם שִׁשָּׁה יָמִים לָעמֶֹר
This book of the Torah shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.
“If you would just read the instructions…”
Why is it, for many of us, that looking at instructions seems like a last resort? I’ve built a few sets of furniture in my life. Sometimes I closely follow the instructions and other times I don’t. I have never gone to bed and woke up the next morning meditating on the manufacturer’s plans on how to build a desk or bookcase. God’s instructions are different but how often do we treat them like we do other instructions in our lives? God does have a plan for life that is truly successful and prosperous. He gives us means to that end and a path to follow to reach His goals.
How do we understand success and failure? What pressures in my life might be keeping me from bearing fruit according to God’s standards of success? What might be God’s solutions and instructions? How can I relate true prosperity to someone else? How can I promote healthy growth in my family, friends, or others whom God has brought into my life?
