Prosperity is Neither Poverty Nor Riches.

Two things I request of You (deprive me not before I die): remove falsehood and lies far from me; give me neither poverty nor riches—feed me with food allotted to me; lest I be full and deny You, and say, “Who is the Lord?” or lest I be poor and steal, and profane the name of my God. Proverbs 30:7-9 NKJV.

This is a model prayer regarding our possessions. When we ask God to meet our needs, we struggle with how to ask Him to prosper us. Our goal is not to accumulate wealth (riches) or renounce it (poverty), but to faithfully oversee our individual portion from God and remain undistracted in our love for Him.things money cant buy

Third John two says, “I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in good health, just as your soul prospers.”

Prosperity is more than just money. It is a lifestyle that includes spiritual fullness, physical well-being, mental soundness, social friendships, and financial well-being.

Prosperity is possessing and stewarding wisely all that God gives you. Prosperity results from God’s grace and our faithfulness to follow biblical principals. A prosperous person is one who is wealthy in all things that eternally matter.

And what do you say?

    Thank you for your post! I believe that the prosperity of our souls, growing in the Lord, is far more valuable and rewarding than the prosperity of earthly riches.

      Thank you for your comment, i agree completely. Far too much attention is paid to temporal ideals than the eternal outlook of our souls.
