The Test of Prosperity

The Test of Prosperity

Like our response to adversity, our response to prosperity reveals our hearts. What kind of prosperity do we long for? Do we long for more of God Himself? Do we want a better relationship with Him for ourselves and for others? Do we long to see His love, grace, mercy, justice, and faithfulness characterize the world? Do we work for that in our spheres of influence? How can you steward your energy and resources today to help others prosper in these ways? God has placed us where we are and prospered us for His purposes. Let us serve Him with grateful hearts.

Lord, you establish peace for us; all that we have accomplished you have done for us.—Isaiah 26:12

Prayer: Lord, may we prosper in our relationship with You so that we will be able to lead others into the riches of knowing You and being known by You. May our lives increasingly reflect our gratitude for all You do for us. In Jesus’ name, amen.
