“Beware, lest you forget the Lord who brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.” Deuteronomy 6:12 Life looks rosy to many people. Their work is fulfilling. The house doesn’t need repair. Their bank account shows a surplus. Family members are enjoying good health. Friends are loyal. Good times, however, can be dangerous. The comforts and pleasures of this world can become so important that we give God little or no place in our thoughts. Prosperity can quickly lead to complacency. Historians tell us that religious fervor usually declines during prosperous times. Let’s be careful that we do not forget the Lord -especially when all looks bright! Prosperity may be a greater test of character than poverty.
