Reading through Job 29-31 today, I realized; I really love Job. He defends himself, and as I read it, I’m like; “This is a guy I want to have as a friend.” He’s bold, honest, compassionate, generous, and faithful. I’m really drawn to him.
Then I begin to think about my character and actions. Am I like that? Could God let Satan have his way with me, and I would be able to know that I was innocent like Job? No. I would not.
But I want to be. Job is just a shadow of who Jesus is. I want to be like Job, but more importantly, I want to be like Jesus. Bold, honest, compassionate, generous, and faithful. Today, I want to work on those traits.
What is your goal for the day?
