He boasts about himself, he follows only people with such a niggard attitude like his.

What does the lamp symbolize in the Bible?

A lamp can be defined as an instrument that gives light.

There are a lot of places in the Bible that talk about Lamps, and because light is important for us to see both physically and spiritually, so the carrier of the light can not be neglected.

The carrier of the light is the lamp, if you take away the carrier of the light from the light, it will be naked and any small wind will put it off. But if you can confine the light in the space of the lamp the chances of it going off fast is low, thereby preserving the durability of the light

Psalm 119:105

 Thy Word Is a Lamp Unto My Feet and Light Unto My Path.

Psalm 119:105

The word of God is a lamp unto my feet, almost say the lamp is like coverage or protection. And the light illuminates the path. We need God’s word to ignite and guide our steps, God’s word can properly enlighten us on what is right and wrong. And the more we marinate ourselves in God’s word, the more we’ll be able to discern between right and wrong and choose the right path.

When we walk at night or in a seemingly dark place, the use of a flashlight is needed. So also this applies to every place we go, we will need God’s word as a lamp to our feet and a light for our path.

Psalm 119: 130

The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.

Psalm 119 vs 130

God’s word enables us to understand right from wrong as we encounter choices of today. God’s word teaches us humility, love, and obedience with the intention that we live confidently and faithfully for God every day. 

What is prosperity biblically?

Prosperity does not just indicate the possession of money and goods but prosperity also means success, thriving, or flourishing.

Money alone is not prosperity. Someone can have money but he or she doesn’t have good health to enjoy the money, it will be meaningless to him.

What does God say about the woman

 Genesis 2:22-23

Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. The man said, This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.

 Genesis 2:22-23

This was where it all began in Genesis (THE BEGINNING).
God saw that man(Adam) needed a companion, Then he put the man in a deep sleep and took the man’s rib, and created The woman.

And after the beginning, we started meeting different women in the Bible that captured our hearts, women like Deborah, Esther, Sarah, Rebecca, Mary, Ruth, Priscilla, Rachel, Abigail, and many more.

There are so many wonderful verses in the Bible that talk about women.

Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

A beautiful woman that dresses well, takes care of herself, and adorns herself is wonderful but without the fear of the Lord, everything is meaningless.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, therefore a woman who fears the lord walks in wisdom, and a wise person is easily admired and praised.
