Proverbs 3:9-10 — In these verses Solomon reminds his son of God’s promises in the Mosaic Covenant. God promised the Nation of Israel material prosperity if they honoured Him with their substance. How does this Old Testament text apply to the New Covenant people of God? Can Christians expect prosperity in this life? The answer is “yes!” but not the kind of prosperity that is promised by those who preach a ‘prosperity gospel’. What God actually has for His people is far better!
