Prospering God’s Way February 8
Food for Thought: Prov. 8:21
One of the best decisions that my husband and I ever made was to not get into deep debt and buy a big house early in our marriage. We also left pretty good paying jobs to work in the ministry. In fact, we did everything contrary to what the world would expect. Many acquaintances shook their heads in disbelief that we would take such radical steps. Since then, God has met our every need and poured out blessings on us beyond our imagination—and with not stress involved.
That’s not to say that every Christian should leave high salaries and never buy houses (His Word never commands us to take a vow of poverty!), but every Christian must be sure never to seek riches as his first priority. The priority is His Kingdom (not our own!) and His righteousness (again, not our own!).
With our eyes fixed on Him, and our spirits guided by His voice and His Word, He gives us wisdom for every situation. Putting Him first in everything sets us on the path to prosperity—God’s way!
