Prosperity 2: Checks and Balances

Originally published on James and Dave’s Bible Page

The message of Biblical prosperity is a

precious blessing which more and more

Christians are learning to walk in. This doctrine is discussed at length in our previous

study, Prosperity: A Biblical Overview.

However, there is another side to the issue,

one which we must not neglect if we are

going to rightly divide the Word of Truth.

While the Bible does teach that

God desires to bless and prosper His people ,

He also expects us to be good stewards of

what He entrusts us with.

The prosperity message does not give us

licence to be greedy or materialistic.

The Bible contains strong warnings against

allowing wealth to have an inordinate place in our

lives. Prosperity is Biblical, avarice is not.

With this in mind, we strongly encourage

you to carefully study the following:

Genesis 12:2: God
