Windows on Finance Part 6
Welcome back. If you’ve just joined us, please read article 5 before you embark into this one, otherwise you might think I’m a subscriber to the “health, wealth and prosperity” club.
Last time we looked at the poverty and provision mindsets and found them both to be at odds with scripture - unless we’re seeking to be cursed or selfish! This left us with only one other possibility... prosperity! We also found Paul supporting this with a bit of a tirade on “abundance” in 2 Cor 9:8.
So to help us get a clearer handle on “prosperity” and “abundance” from a biblical perspective, a great place to start is in Genesis where God not only promises Abraham great wealth, He also puts it into context.
