In the Scriptures, the word prosperity has not only materialistic meaning. It rather has spiritual connotations and denotes virtues such as benevolence, gentleness and strength. The Scriptures state, “You have been born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God” (Pet. 1:23-25). The Bible would not provide us with any promising returns if we read it with malice in our hearts. One of the true advantages of reading Bible is realizing that prosperity lies in having an enriched and ever-lasting life which is free from greed and other selfish intentions.
