Deuteronomy 8 & Matthew 9
Beware lest you say in your heart, ‘My power and the might of my hand have gotten me this wealth.’ You shall remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you power to get wealth, that he may confirm his covenant that he swore to your fathers, as it is this day. And if you forget the Lord your God and go after other gods and serve them and worship them, I solemnly warn you today that you shall surely perish. Like the nations that the Lord makes to perish before you, so shall you perish, because you would not obey the voice of the Lord your God.– Deuteronomy 8:17-20 (ESV)
It is the Lord’s power and might that has gotten us as far as we are. We must, as a church, look at where we are regularly. What can we do to improve? How can we reach our community in greater ways?
Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few…” – Matthew 9:37 (ESV)
