Word of the Day: Abundance

Nov 11, 2021 | Words of Wisdom

ABUNDANCE – a situation in which there is more than enough of something; overflowing fullness

The account of Genesis 1 and 2 makes it clear that God planned for humanity to enjoy the beauty, abundance and fruitfulness of creation. In the idyllic setting of the Garden of Eden, the first humans found a rich, fertile place, and humanity was intended to prosper in every sense. God provides an abundance of resources and means for humans to flourish.

Scripture: Proverbs 3:10

“Then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine.”


“It is a fatal mistake to assume that God’s goal for your life is material prosperity or popular success, as the world defines it. The abundant life has nothing to do with material abundance, and faithfulness to God does not guarantee success in a career or even ministry. Never focus on temporary crowns.”

–Rick Warren
