Folks may like to consider reading this English christian classic which might be of particular interest to Americans, for whom capitalism has become another sort of god.

As the Israelites marched into the Promised Land, God had a specified order for each tribe as they moved forward. This order reveals keys each of us needs to incorporate into our life to reach our destiny.
Levi, which means connect, was the foundation stone of God's plan. This tribe was placed at the center protected by all the other tribes as Israel advanced. Similarly, our connections to God through faith in Jesus' death and resurrection need to be centrally located and protected.
Most Christians know that Judah means praise and was out front but few know that Naphtali, which means warfare, was placed last. With this order God identifies warfare at the rearguard as critical in reaching destiny. The need for prayer covering while new territory is being taken cannot be emphasized enough.

I particularly love this one especially at this time of year. Lucado adds great perspective to the symbolism within the Crucifixion.
