The Vow of Prosperity

When you think of someone living spiritually, do you  think of someone living in poverty or someone living in prosperity? Old ideas about money, taught many of us to believe erroneously that it was holy to be poor. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Do you have an idea that a holy man looks like this?
Or could he look like this?
"It is right that we should be successful, for otherwise the Spirit is not expressed. The Divine cannot lack for anything and we should not lack for anything  that makes life worthwhile here on earth."                                                                                                                                   Ernest Holmes
 We have erroneously believed that the Bible says that money is the root of all evil. What it actually says is:

 "For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs."          1 Timothy 6:10

If our purpose, here on earth, is to express the most good that we can, to be more God-like, then that good would include prosperity.

It is time to make a commitment to living well, to living in right relationship to your Source. Since we are made in the image and likeness of God, we need to accept all good as being worthwhile.

Let's write a vow of prosperity. Let's declare that we renounce all lack, all negativity, all separation. We know that God is our Source and only good comes from God. We have more than enough in a Universe made in His Image. It is in Daniel Nahmod's beautiful song.
