People have been, and are, going through disheartening times; struggling with desolation, desperation, or ungodly dependencies. These aren’t distant problems. These things are affecting people we are close to—those in our community and, yes, within our very congregations!
“And it came to pass on the way, at the encampment, that the LORD met [Moses] and sought to kill him” (Exodus 4:24).

Because before Moses started for Egypt, he still hadn’t met his spiritual leadership obligation for his own sons.
“Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have” (Heb 13:5). Live in contentment and humility in whatever your situation. Regardless of where you are economically, the answer to true wealth and prosperity come back to your personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
