Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: let them say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.
As I am preparing the service I will be doing at Unity on the Bay this Sunday, those words from Psalm 35 keep rattling around in my mind. After much reflection, the title I chose for my talk is, “Be Rich for God.”
As always, I'm not here to convert anyone. And labels don't interest me. It doesn't matter to me what you call your God, or even if you think of it as nature or a universal power. I love the scripture above for a number of reasons. Shouting for joy in a righteous cause celebrates that God has our back, and everything that happens is Divine Order.
The next part reminds us to always be grateful, and encourages us to exalt a power greater than ourselves. And the last part really brings it home, because it affirms that your creator wants prosperity for you.
Sunday I will take it farther and suggest that God not only wants you to be prosperous, but actually needs you to be prosperous.
What do you think about that? Any questions or thoughts you’d like to see me address Sunday?
BTW, doesn't matter where you live. We’ll be streaming the entire service live. Join me to get a peek at my spiritual home. You’ll see the service, a guided meditation, and a musical sign language performance from a troupe of deaf kids you have to see to believe. It will go from 11 am to 12:30 eastern time on Sunday.
