But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
The context of this scripture is that the Children of Israel are about to enter into the promised land. Moses describes what a great land it is, a land where they will not lack anything, where they will live in goodly houses and their gold and silver will multiply. He then warns them against thinking that it is through their efforts that they have become rich and as result turn away from God. But that they must remember it is God who has given them this power to become rich.
A few points we should see from this scripture.
- God is not against people being rich. He is so not against it that he gives them power to become rich.
- God's idea of rich is: no lack, fine houses, gold and silver multiplied.
- God gives this power to get rich in order to fulfill the covenant he swore to Abraham, Issac and Jacob.
What I would really like you to see is that this covenant promise is your God given right.

1 Timothy 5:17 NLT Elders who do their work well should be paid well, especially those who work hard at both preaching and teaching. 18 For the Scripture says, “Do not keep an ox from eating as it treads out the grain.” And in another place, “Those who work deserve their pay!”
