God values productivity. Jesus told a parable about a man who had an unproductive fig tree. The farmer had a choice: cut it down, cut his losses and start over or nurture the tree a little longer in the hopes that it would produce as it was designed. The farmer agrees to the latter plan.
Why does God want you to be productive? First, because He knows that He created you to be productive. Everything in creation has a purpose and reproduces after its own kind. God expects His sons and daughters to live productive lives. Second, He expects fruitfulness because He knows that He has invested in each of us.
When you look at your life, are you really being as productive for God as He would expect? Is there more you could and should be doing? Is there some additional fertilizer that you need so that you can be more productive?
Whatever you need, seek for it earnestly so that you can live your life being productive for the One who created you!
