"Lazy Day" painting by Ivanka Kutner

Satan will sometimes blast us with hardships or sickness. But even more often (especially in our wealthy western countries), the enemy will reel us into his clutches with an easy life. A life of comfort leaves us lethargically dog paddling around in the shallow waters, tucked comfortably into our recliners watching tv… never getting deep, never questioning, never crying out to God. A comfortable life is perhaps the enemy’s most dangerous trap of all.
