Recently, there’s been dialogue about who built a business, the government or people. One side says the government, and another side says the citizen built it. So who is right?
The dialogue reminds me of Deuteronomy chapter 8 and the words of Moses to the people before they entered the promised land. He said:
“Be careful that you do not forget the LORD. Otherwise, when you have eaten and are satisfied, when you build fine houses and your silver and gold increase and all you have is multiplied, then your heart will become proud. 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, and so confirms his covenant.
America has been blessed beyond measure, and I came to the land of milk and honey, and just cannot forget Moses’ warning. As Thanksgiving draws near, let’s take a moment to bow our heads and give thanks for all HE has given us.
