90 Job’s Attitude Toward God’s Blessings


In his heart, Job profoundly believed that all he possessed had been bestowed upon him by God, and had not come off the back of his own labor, that all he possessed had been bestowed upon him by God, and had not come off the back of his own labor. Thus, he did not see these blessings as something to be capitalized upon, but took holding on to the way that he should by tooth and nail as his living principles, but took holding on to the way that he should by tooth and nail as his living principles. He cherished God’s blessings, and gave thanks for them, but he was not enamored of, nor did he seek more blessings. Such was his attitude toward property. He neither did anything for the sake of gaining blessings, nor worried about or was aggrieved by the lack or loss of God’s blessings; he neither became wildly, deliriously happy because of God’s blessings, nor ignored the way of God because of the blessings he frequently enjoyed; he neither became wildly, deliriously happy because of God’s blessings, nor forgot the grace of God because of the blessings he frequently enjoyed.
