Where EntrePRAYneurs unite and share ideas and concepts to prosper in life.
The idea of prosperity is no doubt appealing to many of us, but few people realize its true biblical meaning.
When we think of prosperity, we tend to think in terms of money and financial wealth, but God’s perspective is much broader.
The guidelines we find in the Bible for achieving true prosperity are eternal.
Contrary to what worldly philosophies tell us, God wants His Christian followers to be wealthy and prosperous.
When we read the Word, we learn that money is just a tool to help us do what’s really important, which is serving Him.
When we acknowledge God and ask for His blessings on our finances, He will answer.
But we need to keep those abundant blessings in perspective. “If you start thinking to yourselves, ‘I did all this. And all by myself. I’m rich. It’s all mine!’—well, think again.
Remember that God, your God, gave you the strength to produce all this wealth so as to confirm the covenant that he promised to your ancestors—as it is today” (Deuteronomy 8:17, 18, MSG).
1: auspicious, favorable
2 a : marked by success or economic well-being
b : enjoying vigorous and healthy growth : flourishing
Now let’s look at a familiar bible verse:
3 John 2 (KJV) Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
Note “I wish above all things” this would indicate a need to pay attention to this. It makes me wonder if this is the reason the word Prosperity or being Prosperous has been under attack as it relates to Christians.
The word PROSPER in the Greek New Testament is, “eudoo“, pronounced ‘udoo’. It refers here to prosper; in the physical and spiritual health. It is not a ‘either or’ verse. You are to prosper in “every way“.
If we believe that the word of God is the truth, then this verse is saying to me that true prosperity is the ability to go beyond the outside of my own self-indulgence. To excel to the point of prosperity isn’t just money.
The literal translation of the word “prosper” in 3 John is, “to have a good successful journey or path”.
Here on Prosperous Avenue we believe that it is possible to achieve Total Prosperity (spirit, soul,health,relationships, and finances.)
We are a diverse group of EntrePRAYneurs (we have successfully started businesses and our foundation is prayer) we base our views on the Word of God. We are not religious in the sense that we will judge, discriminate, set rules, or regulations.
Quite the contrary, we are relationship builders and understand that everyone will not agree with our approach.
Our Avenues or paths for a prosperous life may not be for you but we would hope you stick around in our limitless neighborhood we call home…
Again welcome and invite your friends to our community where we all prosper!
