But that is the time to be careful! Beware that in your plenty you do not forget the lord your God and disobey his commands, regulations, and decrees that I am giving you today.
It’s easier to rely completely on God when you have little and He is your hope. It’s also easy to forget to rely on God when you have an abundance and life is good. God’s warning to Israel is as relevant today as it was when it was first uttered. In good times we can get complacent, forgetting all the answered prayers it took to get us to where we are. Never forget where you came from and God who got you there.
