Many, Lord, are asking, “Who will bring us prosperity?”
Let the light of your face shine on us.
Fill my heart with joy
when their grain and new wine abound.
In peace I will lie down and sleep,
for you alone, Lord,
make me dwell in safety. Psalm 4:6-8
Perhaps we in the West have a lopsided perspective of prosperity. In the traditional sense it does mean money and “getting ahead”, but In God’s view, it’s much much different.
Living well is closer to the whole truth of the word.
- Making a difference in the community
- Doing well in business
- Sleeping with a clear conscience
- Trusting in God and reflecting the light of Christ.
