Daily Encouragement: Day 193

From Handbook to Wisdom, Day 193


When I am blessed with abundance,
I will beware lest my heart becomes proud,
and I forget the Lord my God who provided all good
things, thinking that it was my power and the strength
of my hand that brought this wealth.
(Deuteronomy 8:12–14, 17)

Pride goes before destruction,
and a haughty spirit before a fall.
(Proverbs 16:18) 

Lord God, may I ever cultivate the wisdom of gratitude in all things so that I remember that every good thing comes from Your hand. You graciously provide me with far more than I deserve, and I acknowledge that it is Your power and the strength of Your hand that has blessed me. Amen.
