Growing Prosperity or Poverty? Thank Goodness You Can Choose the Abundance of God!
The Path of Growing Prosperity
Growing prosperity and living the abundant life is something most people desire.
Wouldn’t you agree?
Isn’t that why you are reading this right now?
But is it a bad desire?
Consider those who don’t seek a life of growing prosperity and the abundance of God. They often believe the desire to prosper is selfish. And yes, within the ranks of those that seem to be prospering will be a scattering of selfish and greedy people. We do not have to look far in this world to find a selfish person in any arena of life.
But get this: The same group of people that believe it is ungodly to prosper, also seem to think it is a spiritual quality to be poor.
Take note, you cannot be greedy and truly prosper. Part of the spiritual law of prosperity is giving to God and also being a generous giver with others. You simply have to give in order to receive.
Look at this Bible verse:
“There is that scatters, and yet increases; and there is that withholds more than is meet, but it tends to poverty. The liberal soul shall be made fat and he that waters shall be watered also himself.”
— Proverbs 11:24-25
What does this say? When you scatter and give, you’ll have increase. When you withhold and keep more for yourself than you should, it leads to poverty. When you are generous and bless others you will prosper.
Why do you want to have more money, a nicer house, closer relationships, more free time, a stronger faith? I think you would agree it is with the thought of others in mind more than yourself.
Growing prosperity provides the ability to give to others in a greater measure and in a greater quality. This in turn brings great satisfaction in life.
What a great feeling to be able to move your family into a nicer house in a safer neighborhood. There is nothing better in this world than a prosperous marriage. It is a great feeling to upgrade the car and know your family is driving a safe, dependable vehicle. And to have the free time to be spend with your family and serve in your community is so valuable. Having abundance financially to give generously to those in need is and wonderful position to be in.
The abundance of God is more than financial and material. It is God’s desire that you prosper and be in health even as your soul prospers. (3 John 2) Prospering spiritually is the ultimate. There is nothing greater than strong faith and a close walk with God! And the closer you walk in obedience to God, the greater His involvement in your growing prosperity.
Thank goodness you can decide which path you’ll take in life. Even if you are currently in poverty, there is hope and expectations of better things to come. The abundance of God is waiting for you as you begin to honor the Lord and follow His principles and laws of prosperity.
May your life continue to abound with growing prosperity!
Be blessed to be a blessing –
