Genesis 9: 7 (NRSV)

[7] And you, be fruitful and multiply, abound on the earth and multiply in it.

At this point in Genesis, God is speaking with Noah after the great flood.  He is giving Noah and his sons direction to be fruitful and multiply. 

I have not yet taken a count, but this is a phrase that seems to be repeated on multiple occasions in the Bible.  As I was reading it this morning, I could not help but think that God is giving us the same direction today. 

As we build our lives, should we not be fruitful?  Should we not show the best of who we are and multiply?  With so many tools connecting us to each other, plant your best seeds, honor the best version of yourself, and allow God to do his work and multiply your effort.
