Job said, “Naked I came forth from my mother’s womb, and naked shall I go back again. The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD!” Jb_1:6-22
What a mantra to memorize and live, beloved. We get upset when someone cuts us off on the road. We get upset when someone steals our personal belongings. We get upset when some disastrous weather hits us and takes away our shelter or destroys our trees or our property. But can we, like Job, praise the Lord even when bad things happen? Can we understand that it’s all His, even this flesh of ours? Naked we came and naked we shall disappear! Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
