“Then the sons of Israel did what was evil in the sight of the Lord; and the Lord gave them into the hands of Midian for seven years” (Judges 6:1).

The risk of covenant is that with the passage of time it can lead to an overfamiliarity with God; that the diligence we gave to living obediently before the Holy God of our salvation gives way to a lax or entitled perspective toward sinful behaviors. There is no degree of faithfulness in the past that legitimizes reckless living in the present.
