Prosperity can look so good that it’s hard to think about possible downsides. Actions that are detrimental to long-term spiritual health are accepted, and unless the problem is corrected, destruction follows. It happened to Kind Saul. He began as a good king, but in seeking success he failed to see the damage he was doing, but in seeking success he failed to see the damage he was doing. Turning his back on God’s commands, he acted “foolishly” (1 Samuel 13:13) and lost his kingdom (v. 14).
In our attempts to find success, we need to watch out for spiritual pollution that comes when we fail to follow God’s clear scriptural guidelines. Godly living always beats toxic living. – Dave Branon
The Lord has given us commands
And told us to obey;
Our own designs are sure to fail
If we neglect His way! – Bosch
No one can be a real success without God.
