O God, stamp eternity on my eyeballs…

Another temptation is their own prosperity: they think God when He prospereth them is not so angry with them as preachers tell them: and it is a very hard thing in health and prosperity, to lay to heart either sin or threatenings, and to have such serious, lively thoughts of the life to come, as men that are wakened by adversity have; and specially men that are familiar with death. Prosperity is the greatest temptation to security and delaying repentance and putting off preparation for eternity. Overcome prosperity and you overcome your greatest snare.
(Christian Directory, Baxter)
