Arguably the greatest danger for God’s people has always been excess prosperity. Dating all the way back to the Israelites entering Canaan, when God’s people encountered prosperity that they did not earn, we always get full, lazy, complacent, and ultimately sinful. When we sin, God will send spiritual drought, famine, locusts, and pestilence. Thankfully, God is always gracious to hear his repentant people when we turn from our sins.
