So I was thinking about my life goals and how they are very ambitious… I found myself saying I doubt I’ll complete all of them…

Goals within the next 5 years:
Develop healthy platonic relationships (preferably ongoing within the next 4-5 months)
Move out of my mother’s house (preferably within the next 8 months to a year)
Get out of debt (preferably within the next year)
Do a summer missions project in Cairo (2-3 years?)
Do a summer missions project with CTI Ministries (1-2 years)
Make use of all the pages in my Passport and travel the world (life long)
Remaster my instrumental abilities in piano and guitar (this year)
Own an Acura for my vehicle (more…)

So often christians debate on whether we are to live in prosperity or not… they often quote the parable of the rich young ruler where Jesus told him to sell all his possessions, give to the poor and follow HIm. Or the passage where Levi sells all his possessions and repays what he’s taken from people 10 times over… Or they assert that Jesus and His disciples were homeless because they wandered around Jewish and Gentile territory for about 3 years… Well here is my opinion (backed up by scripture of course…)

First I’d like to define prosperity because I’m all about definitions and such… Prosperity is a state of material or spiritual bountifulness
