Day 5 Swing on in with us.

Day 5 - You should not become prideful about anything God has entrusted to you.

Deut 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.

Ps 62:10 If your riches increase, don`t be proud.

Deut 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.”

Ps 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.

Mark 8:36 What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?

Prov 16:19 Better to be poor and humble than proud and rich.

Obadiah 1:3-7 You are proud because you live in a rock fortress and make your home high in the mountains. `Who can ever reach us way up here?` you ask boastfully. Don`t fool yourselves! Though you soar as high as eagles and build your nest among the stars, I will bring you crashing down. I, the LORD, have spoken!'If thieves came at night and robbed you, they would not take everything. Those who harvest grapes always leave a few for the poor. But your enemies will wipe you out completely! Every nook and cranny of Edomwill be searched and looted. Every treasure will be found and taken. 7 'All your allies will turn against you. They will help to chase you from your land. They will promise you peace, while plotting your destruction. Your trusted friends will set traps for you, and you won`t even know about it.
