17 You may say to yourself, “My power and the strength of my
hands have produced this wealth for me.” 18 But remember
the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce
wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors,
as it is today.
Lord God, we praise You for providing manna in the wilderness for
your people in the Old Testament, and for providing for us today.
Please help us not to forget about You and think that we ourselves
are the ones creating wealth, but to recognize that You are the One who makes it all possible.
