He Must Increase-Day 63

I was telling my son about Deuteronomy 8:7-20 today where Moses warns the people about forgetting God once they become prosperous. Here's the passage from the Message paraphrase; enjoy!

"If you start thinking to yourselves, "I did all this. And all by myself. I'm rich. It's all mine!"—well, think again. Remember that God, your God, gave you the strength to produce all this wealth so as to confirm the covenant that he promised to your ancestors—as it is today.

If you forget, forget God, your God, and start taking up with other gods, serving and worshiping them, I'm on record right now as giving you firm warning: that will be the end of you; I mean it—destruction. You'll go to your doom—the same as the nations God is destroying before you; doom because you wouldn't obey the Voice of God, your God.

Read the Bible in One Year Plan: Deut 11-13
