Prosperity is a subject on the lips of many people. How prosperity is defined also differs from one person to the next. Some define prosperity through materialism.....a nice house, car, cloths, lots of money, stocks, bonds etc. Some by the quality of their friendships/relationships, and others by their health or physical appearance.
While there is nothing wrong with enjoying the things mentioned above, the acquisition of these things don't make one prosperous. Knowing the Maker and Giver of all things is the true essence of prosperity.
Psalm 1 says, blessed is the man who meditates on the law of the Lord day and night, he will be like a tree planted by streams of water, bearing fruit in its season, whose leaf does not wither, and what ever they do will prosper.
Do you desire a prosperous life? Do you want fruitfulness to result from your efforts? Prosperity doesn't come from the acquisition of things, people etc. Knowing the prosperer, Jesus, by being intimately acquainted with His truth will yield MUCH fruit in your life. Fruit that will not only have value on this earth, but will have eternal value as well.
