Arrogance and Remembering Gd


"Arrogance is the coin which has been disqualified by the great, blessed King, and He warned us about this in the Torah: 'Be careful lest you forget HaShem your Gd (Devarim 8:11),' for one who is arrogant will forget his Creator, as it is written, 'And your cattle and sheep will become many and your silver and gold will increase, and your heart will become elevated and you will forget HaShem your Gd and you will say, ‘My strength and the might of my hand created all of this wealth for me.' You shall remember HaShem your Gd, for He gives you strength to create wealth. (Devarim 8:13-18)'"

(Orchot Tzaddikim, Shaar haGaavah)

Have a great day,
