Earthly increase and financial gain cannot and should not be used to
determine whether anyone is blessed by God including yourself.
Wealth, power and fame are temporary earthly states of being, soon
to pass away; but the blessings of God are forever.
Brethren, seek for the spiritual, not the carnal; the eternal, not
the temporal; the things of Heaven, not the things of the earth.
If we set our affections on the things of the earth, our hearts and
our souls will become earthbound; but if we set our affection on the
things of Heaven, where Jesus Christ sits on the Right Hand of God, our
hearts and our souls will be heaven bound.
