What does it mean to Flourish?

Today, I thought it might be good to revisit the inspiration for the name of this blog.

From John Ortberg’s book The Me I Want To Be:

God made you to flourish – to receive life from outside yourself, creating vitality within yourself and producing blessing beyond yourself. Flourishing is God’s gift and plan, and when you flourish you are in harmony with God, other people, creation, and yourself. Flourishing is not measured by outward signs such as income, possessions, or attractiveness. It means becoming the person he had in mind in creating you.
