Don’t become prideful about anything God has entrusted to you.
Think about, discuss or pray about the verse that relates most to your life:
Deuteronomy8:17-18 You may say to yourself, “My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me.” But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth.
Psalm 62:10 If your riches increase, don’t be proud.
Deuteronomy 8:11-14 Be careful that you do not forget the LORD your God… Otherwise, when you eat and are satisfied, when you build fine houses and settle down, and when your herds and flocks grow large and your silver and gold increase and all you have is multiplied, then your heart will become proud and you will forget the LORD your God.
Jeremiah 9:23-24 The Lord says, “Let not the…rich man boast of his riches, but let him who boasts boast about this: that he understands and knows Me.”
Psalm 39:5-6 Proud man! Frail as breath! A shadow! And all his busy rushing ends in nothing. He heaps up riches for someone else to spend.
Mark 8:36 What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?
Consider this Quote:
“The first step in financial discipleship is spiritual discipleship. We cannot make God lord of our material goods unless we first accept Him as lord of our lives. This starts with accepting the gift of the Cross, accepting the Saviour who loves us and died for us. And we cannot expect to continue with God as lord of our lives if we do not allow Him to be lord of our material blessings.”
Benjamin C. Maxson, Dynamic Steward, vol 4, no 3.
When a man becomes rich, either God gains a partner or the man loses his soul.
