Chit chat around the table.

Many people think that as soon as the expiration date comes around, their food becomes toxic. While you should always proceed with caution, many of these foods are safe to consume for up to months after the date listed. Here are a few of the...

devotion of the day.

Job 31:24-25, 28 (NIV)
"If I have put my
trust in gold or said to pure gold, 'You are my
if I have rejoiced over my great
wealth, the fortune my hands had gained,

then these also would be sins to be judged,
for I would have been unfaithful to God on
Job continued his defense before his friends.
He told how he always helped the needy and
took good care of his workers. He said that
he was consistent to do those things
because he had a fear of God. He knew God
required it of him, and that he would be
judged if he did not. As we look at Job's
defense, few of us can say that our lives
come anywhere close to Job's. Yet, the real
standard is not Job but Jesus Christ. Thank
God for sending His Son to be the sacrifice
for our sins.
In the passage today, Job says that he did
not trust in his great wealth. Jesus told us it
was very hard for the rich to enter the
Kingdom of God. Job seems to have been
one of the few who could be trusted with
wealth but not rely on it for security. He
recognized that provision came from God.
Though he labors to earn income, God is the
Provider. How many of us can be just as
secure when our bank accounts are
bottoming out as when they are bulging?
That can only come when we see God is our
security regardless of how much we
He did not even rejoice over his wealth. It is
one thing to be thankful and another to find
joy in something. Our joy should always be
the presence of God in our lives. When
wealth becomes our reason for rejoicing we
are turning it into an idol that takes God's
place. Job said that both trusting in wealth
for security and finding your joy in wealth
were both sins to be judged. Both are
unfaithfulness to God.
Dear reader, pause and consider if wealth
has taken God's place in your heart as the
reason you rejoice. Let us guard our hearts
so that we are not seduced by wealth to
worship another god. In this passage, he
groups this sin with worship of the sun and
moon, other gods. If you have fallen in this
area of making wealth a god, confess your
sin, and put God back in His rightful place in
your heart. See that He alone is your security
and your greatest joy.

Devotion For The Day...

Job 1:20-22 (NIV)
At this, Job got up and
tore his robe and shaved his head. Then he
fell to the ground in worship...
and said:
"Naked I came from my mother's womb, and
naked I will depart. The LORD gave and the
LORD has taken away; may the name of the
LORD be praised."
In all this, Job did not
sin by charging God with wrongdoing

We can scarcely imagine all that calamity
striking in one day, though some readers
have had the one thing that was dearest to
them taken. Losing all is losing all regardless
if it is little or much. Surely Job's greatest
loss was that of his children. To lose even
one child is worse than imaginable. How do
you react to adversity?
When we read Job's reaction, we see that
God was correct in His assessment of Job.
I've never seen anyone react without even a
"Why God?" Job will come to that later. If you
are wondering why Satan allowed his wife to
live, it is because she told him to curse God
and die. It was about to get even worse, as
Satan does not wish to admit defeat and
longed to turn Job against God.
Job's response was to worship. His answer
is quoted at funerals, but it should be
considered throughout our lives. We came
into the world without physical things and we
will leave without them. There has never
been a moving van following a casket. The
Egyptians tried, but all those treasures sit in
museums. If our children go first, we will
meet them one day, but our earthly treasures
will go to others. Praise the name of the
LORD. Praise Him for His wisdom in bringing
us to the things that last and separating us
from the temporal. How attached are you to
the things that you will leave behind?
Consider: When we have a realization of the
little value of earthly things, it is much easier
to share them with others at the leading of

Devotion for the day..

Job 1:8-11 (NIV)
Then the LORD said to
Satan, "Have you considered my servant
Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is...
blameless and upright, a man who fears God
and shuns evil."
"Does Job fear God for
nothing?" Satan replied.
"Have you not put
a hedge around him and his household and
everything he has? You have blessed the
work of his hands, so that his flocks and
herds are spread throughout the land.
stretch out your hand and strike everything
he has, and he will surely curse you to your

Job is the earliest of all the literature in the
Bible. The sin that was most feared was
cursing God, even if it was not spoken aloud.
The book begins by describing Job as the
greatest man of the East, and tells us that he
was blameless. We know that all have sinned
and fallen short of God's glory, so we should
consider this to be a statement relative to his
culture. However, God commended him as
one of the most righteous men upon the
The scene changes to the halls of heaven.
Satan (which means the Accuser) had been
roaming the earth. God brought up the
subject of Job and his righteousness. Satan
suggested that it was only because of the
abundance of wealth and protection from evil
that caused Job to act in a righteous manner.
In other words, his heart was not righteous,
he was just never tempted sufficiently. Satan
suggested that if God took away Job's
possessions and he would commit that
unpardonable sin of cursing God, "even curse
You to your face". The heavenly forces are
battling over the souls of men.
We can learn many things from this ancient
narrative. God does put a hedge about us.
Satan was complaining about that because
he is the Destroyer. In the spiritual realms
you can be sure your Adversary is accusing
you before God. He must have permission to
destroy the possessions of those under
God's care. What assurance this should bring
us, knowing that the only time the Adversary
can get through that hedge is at God's
permission. It will either turn us back to God,
or it will bring us to a closer walk with Him. It
will testify to the heavenly realms that the
fallen angels have made the wrong choice.
Remember: You are the subject of a heavenly
battle. Stay faithful!
