In Both Riches and Honor Annie Rix Militz teaches us to view prosperity in the right way, as the Presence of God. We should not reject or despise it, but see it as the legitimate expression of spiritual life.
Militz shows that to be truly prosperous, selfishness must be overcome. Even though selfish people sometimes seem to attain prosperity this path is filled with decay and death. She explains that while that many are satisfied with little this is not necessary nor is it God's will. This living with little is caused by an incorrect interpretation of bible texts and a lie propagated by evil. When we see God as the source of our prosperity and realize that our thoughts and our trust bring us prosperity and are not attached to the material, we are truly prosperous.
Annie Rix Militz was an early organizer of the New Thought Movement. She is best known as the founder of Home of Truth and with her sister Harriet Hale Rix, founder of the West Coast Metaphysical Bureau, a group whose aim was to study philosophies and religions.
