The Daily Nosh – Deuteronomy 8:17-18
Beware lest you say in your heart, ‘My power and the might of my hand have gotten me this wealth.’ You shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that he may confirm His covenant that He swore to your fathers, as it is today. (ESV) Deuteronomy 8:17-18
Nosh: As we are blessed and acquire success and possessions, it is critical that we train ourselves to be humble before God, giving the glory to Him both publicly and privately. Humility insures God’s continued blessing and a trajectory of success. Pride and self-reliance jeopardize God’s partnership and increase the likelihood of failure.
