Today's Word: Job 36:11

Prosperity. What a beautiful and reassuring promise of God to those who obey and serve Him. Some people think that God dislikes the rich but this is a misconception. Just take a look at some of God's people in the Old Testament who were richly blessed by the Lord - Abraham, David, Solomon and Job. They all prospered by the grace of God. It is greed that God hates, not prosperity. The Lord, in truth, wants to prosper us so that we may be able to help others, especially the poor. God, however, doesn't want us to get rich in an instant. Instead, he wants hard, diligent labor and then He blesses the work of our hands. The Lord bless you today.
