Deuteronomy 8:18 really hit me as I was reading a book today (it is quoted).
a.w. pink makes the point that God is sovereign over all things, including the giving and taking of wealth, all for the benefit of His glory being manifested. And so, to some like Gates, Carnegie, that rich guy in your town, he has given the means to make great wealth. In that, however, is a danger that they forget who gave them that ability. The rest of us, likewise, should be just as satisfied with whatever monetary gains we have because it is truly God who is in charge of the entire wealth spectrum.

This, of course, does not deny that mna must work to make living. Indeed, man is still to blame if he flounders and does nothing to provide for himself or his family. But, he is equally to blame if he works and makes a living and does not give the reason for his success to the One whom it belongs. To God along be the glory in all things.
