Mind Your Own Business – devotional – day 5

Day 5
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:

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.” TLB
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.
