Men, we must pray that God will keep us humble, meek, and faithful all the way through our lives, right to the very end.

Very few men can handle prosperity and remain humble. Even Solomon, the king to whom God gave wisdom more than all his equals, failed. He fell through pride, which was generated by prosperity.

Abraham was an exception, as was David who was a man after God's own heart. Moses was faithful right through to the end and it is recorded in Numbers 12:3, "Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth." He remained this way until the Lord took him. Hebrews 11 lists all those who keep faithful through the good times as well as the bad.

Few nations, if any, have been able to handle prosperity and remain faithful. God challenges Israel about this in Deuteronomy 6:10-12 where He lists the blessings they would receive in the land He was bringing them into--great cities, which they did not build, houses full of all good things, which they didn't fill, wells which they didn't dig and vineyards and olive trees which they didn't plant. But then he warned them in verse 12, "Beware lest thou forget the Lord."

The big question is, where does America stand in the midst of so much material blessing? Are we forgetting the Lord?

Be encouraged to keep faithful. Colin
