In good times...

We invariably remember (or curse) God in bad times.  We barely acknowledge him in our good times.  And human psychology and behaviour has proved that the painful and troubled times are the ones we often tend to remember for long, in comparison to the good things that come our way.

The first reading gives us a hint of the good times the Lord offers us, even though not directly present himself...
...in bestowing his goodness, he did not leave himself without witness, for he gave you rains from heaven and fruitful seasons, and filled you with nourishment and gladness for your hearts.
These are so often and so wide spread that we take them for granted and expect that everytime, everyday and everywhere it 'should' be so.  Hence any disruption to this 'good cycle' stands out and in turn tends to be most remembered. 

(Even this note is written in 'good times'... but I guess, when the going gets tough, I don't think this passage would make much sense then!)
