In Chapter 8, God told the people that their success would make them forget all that God had done for them. They would credit themselves with their success by the works of their hands.
I feel like I am in danger of this all of the time. I often recognize what God has and is doing for me, but I also often am proud of where I am in life because of what I’ve done. This is a good reminder to thank God and give him credit for the good things He gives us!
