Righteous Living

It is amazing to me that Jesus told us everything we need to know to live peaceful, righteous lives in Matthew 6. A righteous life is about giving, filling needs. (Loving mercy! Micah 6:8) It’s about praying and fasting. (Talking to God and denying yourself. Walking humbly!) Jesus tells us the truth on how we receive our “heavenly paycheck.” He said that your reward in heaven comes from doing these things in secret where only our Heavenly Father sees them.

Living a life filled with worldly distractions and relying your own strength are enemies to your faith. Trusting and acknowledging God as your constant Provider is essential to living a prosperous and peaceful life. In all that you do, honor Him by giving praise for His worthiness. Worship Him and Him alone. Every breath, every step, every honest gain in your life comes from righteous living and are blessings from God. Those blessings mature when we give them away — in secret.

God always wants to prosper us. It has always been in His plan. Everything that is His is ours through Jesus Christ. True prosperity is only earned through righteous living in knowledge of the grace of Jesus Christ.
