It’s easy to take abundance for granted in our land of plenty. I can only imagine how bittersweet it was for Job to remember the days when God had so blessed him. What a trial Job went through–such a contrast to his previous days!
But it’s a good reminder for us. If we briefly considered how very tough life could be (if “X” happened, or maybe even “Y”), then we can “look back” on our current days in a new light. Perhaps then we can appreciate all that we have, right here, right now.
Job got a bit sentimental, saying, wow, my cows had tons of milk, and my olive trees produced massive quantities of olive oil. But we can almost say that ourselves, today! I guess it’s good to appreciate what we have 😀
