01 Feb Job 1:2-3
2 Seven sons and three daughters were born to him…His possessions also were 7,000 sheep, 3,000 camels, 500 yoke of oxen, 500 female donkeys, and very many servants; and that man was the greatest of all the men of the east
Do you ever think you will be happy if you just get some more stuff? We learned this week that Job had LOTS of stuff! He was wealthy beyond measure, had a large family, huge flocks and herds, and many servants. He would be like a Bill Gates, or Warren Buffet today! In fact, the Bible tells us he was the greatest of all men of the east. Yet, even with everything Job had, was he safe from really bad things happening? Should we put our trust in big houses, cars, cell phones or awesome clothes, or is it better for us to put our trust in Jesus, God’s son?
