    Deuteronnomy 8 NIV

    “ 17 You may say to yourself, “My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me.” 18 But remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today. “

    Whatever we produce is not of our strength, but is is from the mercy and grace of The Lord. He gives us life and breath. If we plant, we can not cause it to grow. The Lord sends the sunshine and rain and air to make is grow. Most do not even know what makes a seed grow let alone be able to make it grow.

    A man can lift weights to get stronger. BUT the DNA of the man determines how strong he can get. The man can not make seeds grow to eat. He can not make the sun to shine or rain to come. The man can not even live without food, let alone get stronger. The very air the man breaths is from God.
