Job was a man who lived in Uz. He was honest inside and out, a man of his word who was totally devoted to God…God said to Satan “Have you noticed my friend Job? There’s no one quite like him, honest and truthful, devoted to God.” Satan said “Do you think Job does all that out of sheer goodness of his heart? You pamper him and bless him! What do you think would happen if you reached down and took away everything that is his? I bet he’d curse you to your face…”
So the story continues with God taking away all Job’s possessions, his health, his family, his wealth and the internal and external struggle that he faces.
If you lost everything like Job, would you be able to still praise God?
Why or why not? What would have to happen for you to be able to?
As you use different objects in your life, think about what would happen if they had been taken away without explanation by God.
