Rain Righteousness

Sow for yourselves righteousness; reap steadfast love; break up your fallow ground, for it is the time to seek the LORD, that he may come and rain righteousness upon you. -Hos 10:12

This verse has completely changed my perspective on "Prosperity Preaching." I never believed in it before, but now I do. God wants us to prosper. He wants us to be incredibly blessed beyond what we ever imagined. The only thing is that He knows what true blessing is, and it's not money, fame, or power. True blessing is righteousness. We are so corrupt and perverse that we fail to see that the worst thing in the world is our sin that separates us from God, and the greatest thing in the world is His righteousness that unites us with Him and transforms us to be like Him.

I like that a lot. Now, if we could just have all those preachers preaching it too...
