Flirting with Prosperity: The Abuse of Jer. 29:11

March 6, 2017


In 2014 Christianity Today asked the online Bible site YouVersion which Bible verses are the most popular in the world. Out of the 160 million users surveyed Jer. 29:11 came in fourth. It didn’t get a podium finish, but as a consolation the weeping prophet did take the gold in Canada, Australia, England and of course South Africa. One might feel sorry for Jer. 29:11 losing out to Romans 12:2 and the old favourite Philippians 4:6-8, but at least he can take courage in the fact that ‘The Lord has plans for you...to prosper...plans to give you hope and a future’.

Having said that, spare a thought for the remaining 32 verses in Jer. 29 - always being discarded and left behind. They are the real stars of the show, as a matter of fact they are the guys and girls giving verse 11 its meaning!
