It was approaching Thanksgiving and Dave's family was together. He was in the construction supply business and business was good. In response to hearing about how well things were going, Dave's daughter said "We sure have a lot to be thankful for!" But instead of agreeing, Dave snapped "I worked hard for all of this!"

Dave was a regular in church, a good moral person, I don't know if he was a Christian but he believed in the existence of God. But he didn't realize, or perhaps he had forgotten or maybe he was blinded to the fact that everything he had, everything he could do all that he had accomplished was from God. He had been placed in history with all the right factors and the right gifts and abilities to make his success possible. Even so, at any time God could say "no more." He worked hard ---- but where did he get his work ethic? He worked hard - but millions, probably billions of people around the globe work much harder and have much less.

"Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought."
