The hired servant
I have learned that talking can be a waste of time. We talk so much in life but how much of it is relevant? I find myself reading scriptures thinking to myself, why say it? How many times have I spoken out of turn? Job described himself as an hireling. He used this example to depict what he saw life was. We are here for a period of time, somewhat renting the bodies we have been given.
How many different pieces of advice did Job get and how much was right? It’s like success and failure, when they come around there are so many reasons we can point to, take your pick. Simplicity isn’t advanced but in life, I have seen how I have over complicated many things which needed no editorial comments. I began thinking, what would I do if I feel I lost everything? Would I still praise God, would I remain downhearted? Just like what is stated above there are so many ways one can handle it. I don’t have to say x handled it like this so I should do likewise. I don’t even need examples to live by but I chose to so often in times past. I think of times God has told me something and someone has told me contrary information and I have listened to others who were not God. Thinking you are perfect when you are not creates complacency. When you take the bar off your limit, you can keep and keep and keep on improving. Where people sway you to live a certain way but God says differentiate yourself I’m changing. I’m learning every day how to put God first.
