purpose for prosperity

Deuteronomy 8:15 He led you through the great and terrible open country with its poisonous snakes and scorpions, a thirsty land where there was no water. He brought water out of the flint rock for you.
Deuteronomy 8:16 He fed you in the open country with manna, which your fathers had not known, in order to discipline and test you, so that in the end he might cause you to prosper.
Deuteronomy 8:17 You may say to yourself, ‘My power and my own ability have gained this wealth for me,’
Deuteronomy 8:18 but remember that Yahveh your God gives you the power to gain wealth, in order to confirm his covenant he swore to your fathers, as it is today.

Prospering at what she does can give a person a sense of self-worth, pride of accomplishment, extra income to share or the ability to live with a higher standard or enjoy leisure activities or invest in things.

Not one of those could be counted as the purpose for the wealth the Israelites would experience. Instead, their prosperity was given by God in order to confirm his covenant.

The Lord is blessing us, and intends to bless us more in so many ways. By staying within the parameters of his covenant with us, we ensure that others will take notice of those blessings, and attribute them to God.

Lord, thank you for the blessings we constantly receive from your hand. May we stay faithful to your covenant with us.
