To flourish in every area of your life means that you will prosper spiritually — putting God first in all things, spending quality time reading, meditating, and acting upon His Word, fellowshipping with Him through prayer, praise, and worship, and growing spiritually each and every day.
It means that your soul will be cultivated and satisfied — growing intellectually, thriving in your emotions and in your relationships, utilizing your God-given talents and creativity, experiencing success in your business endeavors, and reaching the height of development in your life’s calling.
And finally, it means that you will live with total health in your body, eating healthy and nutritious foods, exercising your body on a regular basis, and getting plenty of rest — caring for your “temple” so that you can fulfill God’s plan for your life.
