Henry: the effects of prosperity

Tuesday, November 14, 2023
    Commemoration of Samuel Seabury, First Anglican Bishop in North America, 1796
    When I fed them, they were satisfied; when they were satisfied, they became proud; then they forgot me.
    —Hosea 13:6 (NIV)
    Pride, security, and other sins that are common effects of prosperity, are enemies more dangerous than beasts of the field, and more apt to increase upon us.
    ... Matthew Henry (1662-1714), Concise Commentary on the Bible [1706], Deut. 7:12-26 in loc (see the book)
    See also Hos. 13:6; Deut. 7:12-26; 8:10-14; 31:20; Ps. 127:1; Pr. 18:11-12; Matt. 19:23-24; Luke 6:24-25; 16:13; 1 Tim. 6:17-19; Jas. 5:1-3
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant me greater caution with prosperity.
