January Twenty Six

What an amazing morning. My husband normally would be at work by this time so him being here was a blessing. I went into the living room and he had my coffee poured and waiting for me. He sat and read with me as we enjoyed our coffee. We haven't done that for awhile.

Job's Ninth speech: A response to Bildad

Jobs final speech

Okay, I was a little excited to read this heading I am not going to lie. But I was getting a little tired of reading Job...Job is reminding me of all the the wicked have here on earth is TEMPORARY.

Job speaks of wisdom and understanding.
Even with this being the heading.... I am a little confused. I forgot that I was reading of things BC. Job is going over the earthly wealth of jewels and precious metals and at the end...Job 28:28 And this is what he says to all humanity 'The fear of the Lord is true wisdom, to forsake evil is real true wisdom, to forsake evil is real understanding.' My brain is stuck here, please tell me what I am to get out of this.

Job speaks of his former blessings
God gives and it is not of our own doing. Everything on earth is TEMPORARY. I have been taught not to hold on to it but wow is that hard. Not so much the money and pocessions but of loved ones.
