The physical prosperity the apostle John wished for Gaius was held in relationship with Gaius’ preexistent spiritual prosperity. John writes; “even as thy soul prospereth.” To wish physical prosperity on someone without their first attaining spiritual maturity is dangerous. Why? Because...



If the soul is not first prospering in humility; wealth will make it proud.

If the soul is not first prospering in gentleness; wealth will make it rough.

If the soul is not first prospering in generosity; wealth will make it stingy.

If the soul is not first prospering in faith; wealth will make it doubt.

If the soul it not first prospering in selflessness; wealth will make it selfish.


"The prosperity of fools shall destroy them." Prov. 1:32
