A Biblical Definition of Flourishing

I read in Psalm 53 how David contrasts a flourishing person to someone who instead boasts, deceives others, trusts in wealth, and uses power to bring others down. But then, David writes:

But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God’s unfailing love for ever and ever. I will praise you forever for what you have done; in your name I will hope, for your name is good. I will praise you in the presence of your saints

I note the flourishing state of trusting God, praising God, and hoping in God. 

May we flourish today! More and more, may we grow up into trust, praise, and hope in God.
