Scripture Session: Prosperity without Selling Your Soul

Proverbs 10:22 NIV

The blessing of the Lord brings wealth, without painful toil for it.

When you look up synonyms for wealth, words like prosperity and affluence come up.  When the Lord decides to bless someone, he brings them prosperity without bad consequences.  This is meaningful because most of us know how to achieve something thru cheating, stealing, betraying others, or doing other negative behaviors.  We’ve also heard of folks that have become great and famous only to lose their peace, friends, sanity, or gain addictions in the process.  We don’t have to worry about selling our soul to hell for eternity to receive favor from God. Furthermore, apart from prosperity the Lord could also provide affluence which basically means status to someone.  So even if you aren’t showered with riches on earth, at minimum being blessed by God will bring you a higher status.  The higher status being you belong to him and everything that comes with that.  People treat you different based on who you know and who you roll with. Belonging to God gives us clout, clout without again compromising ourselves and being slave to fleshly and sinful desires.
