September 3 – God Blesses Devoted Children

Daily Bible Life

Job (in the bible) was a rich man who could be referred to as a billionaire of his time. The man disallowed riches to blindfold him, and faithfully served God. The Bible described Job as a faithful man who loved God wholeheartedly and served him with the best of his ability. The Bible made the following declaration about Job, “There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was blameless and upright, and one who feared God and shunned evil. And seven sons and three daughters were born to him. Also, his possessions were seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, five hundred yoke of oxen, five hundred female donkeys, and a very large household, so that this man was the greatest of all the people of the East. And his sons would go and feast in their houses, each on his appointed day, and would send and invite their three sisters to eat and drink with them. So it was, when the days of feasting had run their course, that Job would send and sanctify them, and he would rise early in the morning and offer burnt offerings according to the number of them all. For Job said, “It may be that my sons have sinned and cursed God in their hearts.” Thus Job did regularly” (Job 1:1-5).

 

Lesson:

Children of God can be rich and still serve God faithfully. We can follow the story of Job, as an example (Job 1:1-5) who served God faithfully with his riches. Moreover, it takes humility for any wealthy person to serve God faithfully. The person must place God above his interests. In other words, a Christian who desires riches ought to first question himself or herself on the subject of trust. He ought to be able to ask, “Can God, trust me if I am rich?” God will surely bless anyone determined to serve him with a loyal heart.

 

Prayer

Dear God, please make me a trustworthy Christian who is neither selfish nor obsessed with riches. Give me a heart that considers you first and prioritizes serving you above my interest. Help me to serve you with a pure heart so that I can have the opportunity to enjoy your riches for a long time. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.
