Eye on Integrity-Remember God’s Blessings

September 12th, 2018

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Eye on Integrity is based on Deuteronomy 8, verses 17 and 18a.

Moses gave the Israelites some words of preparation before they would enter the Promised Land, where they would prosper.

“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.”

Moses was warning the people about the dangers of pride. If we forget God, we open the door to arrogance. But thanksgiving and praise to God keeps us joyful in the Lord and humble in His presence. Moses told the Israelites, “When you have eaten and are satisfied, praise the LORD your God for the good land he has given you.”

Walking in remembrance of God’s blessings is a virtue to embrace for our lives in the Year of Integrity.
