Before I got to this sentence: "Many people want prosperity to simply drop in their laps, but it doesn't work that way." I was thinking that in my comment I was going to mention how many Christians may see these verses and expect to be well off. not so.


This is going to be an excellent series, I'm looking forward to it. As for thinking of what you are going to talk about, I'm sure some will be in relation to Debt, lending, spending, giving, earning, annnndddd... More! :)

I'm curious--why is "LORD" in all caps?

"Also, let me know what you think my seven principles will/should be. It will be kinda fun to see if we agree. ;-)"

I'll start off:

#1. SPEND LESS THAN YOU EARN

If that's not on the list, my God strike me down!

1. Expenses Matter - when deciding between two comparable investments choose the less expensive one

2. Investment Complexity - if you do not understand the risk of your investment or how you will make money on it, you should not be invested in it

3. Savings - From your first paycheck to your last you should set aside at least 10% for retirement

Let's see...

1. Spend less than you earn.
2. Give generously.
3. Work hard.

That's 3out of 7.

KH --

It's the style used by the version I quoted.

Not sure what yours are, but if I were to give seven, they would be:
1. Love the Lord God with all your heart, soul and mind.
2. Give generously to Gods kingdom. (Minimum 10% is not the maximum)
3. Love others as you love yourself.
4. Spend less than you earn.
5. Save as much as is possible.
6. Invest with prayer
7. Commit all you do to God.

I have a friend who retired in his 30's just from following the steps provided in the "Richest Man in Babylon" ... interested the origins of the book ... bank fliers

I don't have much to add beyond those mentioned above, but "Help Others" would seem to be on the list, although "Love others as you love yourself" mentioned by Gary may be close enough.

"I'm curious--why is "LORD" in all caps?" - KH

I'm no expert on this, but the Jewish people in the Old Testament referred to God in many ways. For example, Elohim (Creator, Mighty and Strong); El Shaddai (God Almighty); Adonai (Master); Yahweh (Self-Existent One).

When you see LORD (all caps), it means Yahweh. This is the name God gave himself when he spoke to Moses from the burning bush in Exodus 3, meaning I AM WHO I AM. Hope that helps.
