Life in the Fast Lane

And seven sons and three daughters were born to him. Also, his possessions were 7000 sheep, 3000 camels, 500 yoke of oxen, 500 female donkeys, and a very large household, so that this man was the greatest of all the people of the East” (Job 1:2,3).

JOB was a rich man. He had a large family, a huge staff working for him, and many possessions. This was a man God could trust with wealth.

Jesus said that it is very hard for a rich man to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven (Matt. 19:23) because his money often becomes his “god.” Where our treasure is, there our heart is also (Matt. 6:21).

Truly rich is the individual who is so spiritually rich that his material wealth becomes a vehicle to bless others in obedience to the prompting of the Holy Spirit. Job was a man like that.

Job, a Man God Could Trust With Wealth

Job understood he was the steward of all God had entrusted to him. “I delivered the poor who cried out, and the fatherless and he who had no helper… I caused the widow’s heart to sing for joy… I was eyes to the blind…feet to the lame… a father to the poor” (Job 29:12-16).

How it must grieve the heart of God when He wants to help someone, and we refuse to part with His provision entrusted into our hands. #FaithfulWithMoney Click To Tweet
