Isn’t too much victory bad for us?

He put garrisons in Edom, and all the Edomites became subject to David. The Lord gave David victory wherever he went.  1 Chronicles 18:13
            Yes, it is for most of us.  David remained humble for a long period of time, but we could see small indicators that too much victory, even for a great man like David, was not good for him.
            He felt justified to take many wives, have many children (who fought with one another) and then backed off from going to war and remained home where he compromised his marriage vows.
            Those victories were short-lived and God allowed turmoil to happen to David to reset his humility.
