This week, Pastor Parkey teaches on the spectrum of life and where we fall on it, from destitution to prosperity. Where we are is very important and dictates how we live our lives and act in different situations.

Make it through the ups and downs, and don’t look with envy at another’s field; it may provide immediately gain, but it won’t sustain it like God will! God will provide for you, and He knows your story, so remain faithful to Him wherever you are on the spectrum from destitution to prosperity, all the while giving God all the glory!!!
