To Not Forget

What is the first work we are to do (Deut. 8:11)? What does working help you gain? Work is great but what are you to put your trust in (Deut. 8:17-20)? What does Luke 15:8-10 say about valuing what we earn or have? How do your children learn the value of work from you?
Definitely a clear message today from Deuteronomy 8:11-20--don't forget the Lord and His commandments and rules. Well, if I'm just thinking about myself, some things I would do to "not forget" would be staying in the Word, attending church, seeking friendships with other believers, things like that.
