Our sages say, “Whoever fulfills the Torah in the midst of poverty will ultimately fulfill it in the midst of riches; whoever neglects the Torah in the midst of riches will ultimately neglect it of the midst of poverty” (Avot 4:9).
One who neglects the Torah will do so whether it is a time of trouble and sorrow or a time of overt miracles, and one who fulfills the Torah will continue to fulfill it even at a time of great difficulty and upheaval.
By his very nature, man tends to fall.
Because of this, we must constantly be engaged in spiritual work, with or without miracles; the test of faith never ends.
–Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
