Job2:7-8 – Job Faced Satan’s Temptation Calmly

So went Satan forth from the presence of the LORD, and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot to his crown. And he took him a potsherd to scrape himself with; and he sat down among the ashes.

– Job2:7-8

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

Job was a true and kind-hearted person. Though he was the greatest man among all the people of the East, he never cherished his status, nor did he care how others viewed him during the trials. Instead, he took a potsherd to scrape himself while sitting among the ashes. Reflecting on ourselves, we often cautiously disguise ourselves for fame and status, and we are unwilling to allow others to see our shortcomings, which brought us great pain. Only by casting off the bondage of fame and status can we be a real man and live true, innocent and open. God says, “Despite his prestigious standing and status, he had never loved nor paid them any attention; he cared not how others viewed his standing, nor was he concerned about whether his actions or conduct would have any negative effect on his standing; he did not indulge in the riches of status, nor did he enjoy the glory that came with status and standing. He only cared about his value and the significance of his living in the eyes of Jehovah God. Job’s true self was his very substance: He did not love fame and fortune, and did not live for fame and fortune; he was true, and pure, and without falsity”.
