“Our people must learn to do good by meeting the urgent needs of others; then they will not be unproductive.” (Titus 3:14 NLT). 

Productivity is the quality of being productive or having the power to produce. Being productive means to be fertile, prolific, fruitful, efficient, causative and yielding positive results. 

Activity is not equal to productivity, you can be active and not be productive.

“And God blessed them and said to them, be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it [using all its vast resources in the service of God and man]; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and over every living creature that moves upon the earth (Genesis 1:28 AMP).

God’s purpose for creating man is not for him just to be active but to be productive, using all the vast resources in the service of God and man. The primary purpose of resources from God is for corporate employment and not just personal enjoyment. 

Life is not measured by the quantity of your resources but by the quality of your relationship with God and man which results in using your resources in the service of God and man.

Life is not measured by affluence but by influence. The greatest influence you can have is to influence others to follow Christ. “Many will see and fear [with great reverence] and will trust confidently in the Lord.” (Psalm 40:3 AMP).

Do not be full of activity channeling all your energy in search of resources just to meet your needs alone (having goods, looking good and feeling good). Be productive using all your resources in the service of God and man, meeting the most essential need of man – reconciling them back to God.

True productivity is not just meeting your needs but the needs of others.
