I read verse 6 of Psalm 122 in context this morning. It inspired me. It causes me to want to seek out investments in the stock market that are Jewish whether they are in the land of Israel or America. When this verse says Jerusalem it is referring to God’s people, the Jews.
I have learned from reading the Bible that as a Christian I’m a descendent of Abraham. Abraham was a man of great faith in God in the Old Testament. God told him he would bless him and his descendants. I trust God that He can help our family prosper in order that we would have more than enough in our finances to wisely and kindly give to others and then they will see our lives and our kindness toward them and know that God is kind to them also.
6 Pray for peace in Jerusalem.
May all who love this city prosper.
7 O Jerusalem, may there be peace within your walls
and prosperity in your palaces.
8 For the sake of my family and friends, I will say,
“May you have peace.”
9 For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
I will seek what is best for you, O Jerusalem
