“Valuable Things”

Prov 3:9 speaks of honoring Jehovah with our valuable things. The days text reminds us of another lose job suffered. While his faith and integrity were tested.

Job 1:5 speaks of Jobs pattern of worship. Daily he offered up his burnt offerings to god for his family.

When he lost his livestock he not only lost his livelihood, he also lost the valuable things he daily offered to Jehovah. How would he honor Jehovah with “nothing”?

I know I have felt like I had nothing to offer back to Jehovah many times in my life, but here we are reminded that our heart and our lips are something Jehovah values. We can always offer praise to him and honor him with these. There are many lessons we can learn from Job. I am glad Jehovah chose to share his life with us.
