Perhaps one should not fixate merely on the prosperity. There is prosperity in other ways. Jesus said to sell it all and follow Him, to worry not about the morrow. Paul said that he learned to live prosperous in his poverty and lean in his times of prosperity. There is wealth in so much more such as in the relationships made just in doing God's word, there is a joy in His path, and fulfillment in His peace. And if bountiful material possession then more material possession to share. Prosperity is a state of being not a tally of possessions.
