Don’t become Prideful about anything
God has entrusted to you.
Read the following verses. Think and pray about the verse that applies the most to your life.
Because God has given you the ability to produce the things you need to become successful, doesn’t mean that you forget who and whose you are. Remember, pride comes before a fall.
Deuteronomy 8:17-18 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. TLB
Mark 8:36 What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?
Proverbs 16:19 Better to be poor and humble than proud and rich. TLB
Obadiah 1:3-7 “The pride of your heart has deceived you, you who… make your home on the heights, you who say to yourself, ‘Who can bring me down to the ground?’ Though you soar like the eagle and make your nest among the stars, from there I will bring you down,” declares the LORD… “Oh, what a disaster awaits you…Your friends will deceive and overpower you.”
When a man becomes rich, either God gains a partner or the man loses his soul.
