Good Times and Bad September 8, 2006

Can’t say that I read Ecclesiastes too much, but I like this verse. It seems like too few in the Church today embrace this truth:

In the day of prosperity be joyful, and in the day of adversity consider: God has made the one as well as the other…” (Ecclesiastes 7:14)

Or as Job says, “The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.”

I’m constantly praying for grace that would prepare me for my day of affliction. For surely, that day is coming: “through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God” (Acts 14:22).

May we all have the strength and the hope to respond to our coming calamities like Job.
