Where the real risks lie…

John Calvin on Isaiah 32:11…

Tremble, you women who are at ease;
Be troubled, you complacent ones;
Strip yourselves, make yourselves bare,
And gird sackcloth on your waists.

“Men are undoubtedly more in danger from prosperity than from adversity; for when matters go smoothly with them, they flatter themselves, and are intoxicated by their success; and therefore, it was necessary to deal more sharply with the Jews, in order to shake off that slothfulness.”
