Obedient People DO Have Hardship Sometimes

I’m gong to be reading the book of Job over the next (probably 40) few weeks because I feel that it is an important story that diffuses some of the myths about hardship. One myth is that you are not a child of God or you are in current sin/disobedience if you have hardship. Another myth is that everyone who is a child of God is guaranteed lifelong financial prosperity. Both ideas are false, and I think the book of Job is a good reminder to all people that:

a. God’s children do suffer sometimes and do not always have financial prosperity
b. Anyone could lose everything that he/she has at any moment in time.

I’m just going to read it with my primitive equipment. Will probably post a bit every Friday/Saturday. Listen in if you like. God bless.
