Psalm 4:6

Psalm4:6 Many, Lord, are asking, “Who will bring us prosperity?”Let the light of your face shine on us.

Why are you asking the Lord for your prosperity? So many want prosperity without working, with a quick fix, a lottery ticket. And if you did receive this prosperity what would you do with it? Would you do any good? Would you educate yourself, make investments for your future? How many would blow it all and be worse off than before they received the windfall?

Why should the light of his face shine on us? Why should the Lord make his face to shine on any of us for that matter? Have we honored him with our lives, our actions, our motives or are we selfish and unloving?
