Hope Brings Rewards

Our Bible Reading today tells us about a man named Job. All of Job’s children and animals were killed. Job thought that God had forgotten him. But still Job had hope that God would pay attention to his prayers and have a close relationship with him.
Job’s friends came to visit him. They tried to convince Job that his problems happened because of his sin. Finally, Job understood that God had never left him. Job also understood that it isn’t important to know why bad things happen. It is important to know that God is in control.
In Job 42:16-17 we learn more about Job. “Job lived for 140 years more. He lived to see his children, his grandchildren, his great-grandchildren, and his great-great grandchildren. Job lived to be a very old man who had lived a good, long life.” Job’s hope was rewarded!
Your hope will be rewarded, too. When you experience bad times, don’t give up. God will always be with you and take care of you.
