Divine Testing…

“The Biblical story of Job testifies to the fact that a righteous man can lose all earthly riches in one day and even more an unrighteous one. In one day the righteous Job lost all his property and also his sons and daughters. Then he lost his health and then as a pauperr he lay on the dunghill and lamented his woes. Are you not afraid that the same thing could be following you? In his misery and sickness the pious Job defended his soul against despair with strong faith in God. What will you defend yours with?”
