REMEMBER Humility teaches; pride and prosperity make you forget. Deuteronomy 8
2"Remember that the Lord God led you all the way these forty years in the wilderness, to humble you and test you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not. 3He humbled you. He allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna, that He might make you know man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord. 4Your garments did not wear out, nor did your foot swell these forty years. 5You should know as a man chastens his son, so the Lord chastens you. 6"Therefore keep the commandments, walk in His ways and fear Him. 7For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, that flow out of valleys and hills; 8a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive oil and honey9a land in which you will eat bread without scarcity, in which you will lack nothing; a land whose stones are iron and out of whose hills you can dig copper. 10When you have eaten and are full, then you shall bless the Lord your God for the good land which He has given you. 11"Beware that you do not forget the Lord your God by not keeping His judgments and His statutes which I command you today, 12lest--when you have eaten and are full, and have built beautiful houses; 13when your herds and flocks multiply, and all that you have is multiplied; 14when your heart is lifted up, and you forget the Lord your God who brought you out of Egypt, from the house of bondage; 15who led you through that great and terrible wilderness, in which were fiery serpents and scorpions and thirsty land where there was no water; who brought water for you out of the flinty rock; 16who fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your fathers did not know, that He might humble you and test you, to do you good in the end--17then you say in your heart, 'my power and the might of my hand have gained me this wealth.' 18"Remember the Lord. It is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers. 19 If you by any means forget the Lord and serve other gods, and worship them, I testify against you this day that you shall surely perish. 20As the nations which the Lord destroys before you, so you shall perish, because you would not be obedient to the Lord.''
