  • When you go through a period in your life in which your life is going smoothly, you are in very dangerous territory spiritually. There is no greater crisis than to have no crisis in your life. There is no greater danger than to have no sense of danger in your life.

  • Take care lest you forget the Lord your God, lest when you have eaten and are full and have built good houses and live in

    them, and when your herds and flocks multiply and your silver and gold is

    multiplied and all that you have is multiplied, then your heart will be lifted up, and you

    forget the Lord your God.

    ~ Moses in Deuteronomy 8:11-14
