eSeed: Dad Or Dollars

Read Job 13:15

A student wrote this letter:

“Dear Dad, I haven’t heard a word from you in weeks. Please send me a check by return mail, so I’ll know you’re all right.”

I’m afraid he was more interested in dollars than dad. Aren’t you?

He was like many in Bible times. They followed the Lord for His favors, not His fellowship.

That’s what Satan thought about Job. He said to the Lord, “Look how rich he is. Take away his wealth and You’ll see him curse You.”

The Lord gave him permission to take away his wealth. Did Job curse God? No.

He said, “Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him.”

He had a rugged faith. Not a rigged faith. Have you?

Prayer: Give us, Father, a faith that is vital and vocal; a faith that loves Thy word, that listens to Thy word, that lives Thy word, and that labors for Thy honor and glory: through Christ. Amen.
