The Hymn of God’s Word “Job’s Attitude Toward God’s Blessings”

  • The Hymn of God's Word "Job's Attitude Toward God's Blessings"

    In Job’s heart, he deeply believed that his everything was from God’s blessing, not gained by his hard labor, his everything was from God’s blessing, not gained by his hard labor. So, he did not take the blessings he received as his capital, but took holding fast the way he should keep with all his heart and strength as his living principle, but took holding fast the way he should keep with all his heart and strength as his living principle. He treasured and thanked God’s blessings, but did not hanker after or demand more blessings. This is his attitude toward possessions. He did not do anything to receive blessings, nor did he feel worried or sorrowful for not having or losing blessings. He was not overjoyed or carried away because of God’s blessings, nor did he neglect God’s ways because of continually enjoying blessings. He was not overjoyed or carried away because of God’s blessings, nor did he forget God’s grace because of continually enjoying blessings.
