1/11/2018 Job Chapters 29-31
In these three chapters I see three major themes. In Job 29 he longs for the “good ol’ days.” In Job 30 he states the condition he is in now. In Job 31 he reflects on examples of the righteous life he has lead.
My application — we cannot expect to live in the past no matter how good or how bad those days may have been; we sometimes must accept the conditions that surround us without losing faith; and we must continuously examine ourselves (re: 2 Corinthians 13:5 5 — Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Can’t you see for yourselves that Jesus Christ is in you — unless you actually fail the test? )
